Using local insights to spark innovation
Sunderland City Council and a Northern Ireland based consortium were selected as the first two location partners for the autumn testing phase of the Homes for Healthy Ageing programme. As testbed hosts, they’ve identified a number of local challenges that they want UK SMEs and innovators to help address through home- and place-based solutions.
What’s the webinar about?
This webinar is a chance for UK SMEs and innovators to understand more about the specific challenges and opportunities of healthy ageing at a local level, and spark ideas, conversations and interest in supporting the first testbed phase.
Connected Places Catapult is inviting SMEs to join this informative webinar to learn about the addressable programme challenges. The Homes for Healthy Ageing testbeds provide an opportunity to test, develop and showcase solutions.
Join the team and our location partners on 15th September to find out more about the specific local themes and challenges, and ask questions about the programme.
