The CREATOR mini-program has been made possible by the INTERREG IVC and Co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention.

Senior mobility by ICT home support

SILHOUETTE project will support an active and social lifestyle of seniors around the concept of health safety, novel communication and out of home support.
One of the key issues concerning healthy well-being of elderly citizens is ensuring their activity in the society. This is most often connected with eliminating barriers for the mobility of seniors, ensuring their health safety and providing them with means to communicate with the rest of the community.
The project will analyse practices existing in seven regions to define a portfolio of ICT solutions supporting activity of the elderly.

SILHOUETTE will select solutions to undergo pilot experimentation with the participation of senior groups. Practical demonstrations will take place in all regions. The project will also create recommendations on creating regional open platforms for ICT solutions for active seniors. This will lead to establishing business know-how in the regions and thus make contribution to regional economic development.
SILHOUETTE will be executed in three phases: analysis of best practices and policies, joint pilot experimentation and joint action plan development.

SILHOUETTE project consists of participants from seven regions: Wielkopolska, Västerbotten, Häme, North Hungary, Brescia, Lorraine and Asturias.
