The aim of the I -CARE-SMART project is to build and strengthen cooperation with organizations that are able to provide the latest technological solutions in the field of health care and social care for the elderly. I-CARE-SMART aims to bring innovation closer to senior citizens by introducing innovative products and services with the active involvement of users and boost the silver economy.

The project is a response to the region’s challenges regarding an aging society and insufficient offer for seniors. The project will create a transnational open innovation platform for intelligent care for the elderly, including emergency services notification system, coordinated care, telecare and other business solutions tailored to the needs of seniors from the participating regions.

I-CARE-SMART will enable partnerships between public authorities, universities, enterprises, caregivers and carers. The project will contribute to the development of effective solutions to respond to the previously unmet needs of older people in the area of health care and social assistance. Older people, often lonely and disabled, require specialist support. Existing solutions such as electronic exchange of patient data, e-health, vital signs and fall detectors as well as medical equipment do not completely improve the quality of life of older people and meet all their health needs. For this reason, it is so important to adapt the offer of services dedicated to seniors. Project partners and stakeholders will assess the possibilities of applying new solutions and propose measures for their implementation by the social and health care system.
