OSIRIS Interreg BSR Final Transnational Conference
30.11.2021 klo: 09.00 - 01.12.2021 klo: 16.00
The European Silver Economy is the part of the economy that concerns Europe’s older citizens. It includes all the economic activities relevant to the needs of older adults and has an impact on many sectors. The Silver Economy is closely linked to Europe’s current demographic change as well as to the effects on older adults’ quality of life. It is estimated that by 2025 healthcare costs will double and the budgetary pressure on health budgets will be huge.
About the OSIRIS Interreg BSR project: The project aims to enhance Silver Economy growth opportunities in the Baltic region by improving the capacity of innovation actors to apply smart specialization approaches for tackling the challenge of the region’s aging society. It seeks to boost market uptake and scaling of user-driven technology innovations that accommodate age-specific needs and preferences, and demonstrate a significant impact on the quality of life of the aging population, including age-friendly living environments, health, safety, and leisure.
Welcome to this 2-day-event that will be organized in Hämeenlinna, Finland. Event programme includes inspiring key note speeches by diverse experts from the Baltic Sea region as well as launching of the Silver Hub platform and the Joint Action Plan developed during the project.
