The fact that by 2060 will be every third European older than 65 years makes the “Silver Economy” one of the fastest-growing economic domains.

Many solutions for the elderly are digital-based but not well accepted by the care recipients. Thus, current state presents a growing need to involve them in the product design process. 

Our mission is to provide customer-centered home care by co-creation.

How we do it? We engage the members of Quadruple Helix - SMEs, public institutions, research institutions and citizens in the development of new innovative health and social services or products.
