The WeCare project’s goal has been to enable older people to participate in social networks, both online and in real life; to enable them contribute to society, to prevent loneliness, and to improve their well-being. By increasing their participation and autonomy, older people can live at home longer and preserve their quality of life.
Moreover, business models were developed in close cooperation with the industry. The business models in Finland and Spain focused improving existing services, whereas in Ireland and The Netherlands they focused on packaging with other services and increasing their value and revenues.
This is how we help projects delivering social innovation!
We, at the AAL Joint Programme, are seriously committed in helping our projects to go to market so that they can deliver for the good of individuals, society and economy. This is social Innovation.
