Digital Approaches to Active and Healthy Ageing – Shared Learning from the Fenin Ecosystem in Spain and Scotland
Join the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre, Fenin and Scottish Development International as they host a Healthy Ageing Innovation Cluster event, as part of Scotland’s DigiFest 2021, sharing learning and best practice from Spain. The session will provide an opportunity to learn more about the opportunities available in Spain for Scottish academics and businesses looking to collaborate on new projects.
This is one of a series of events that will take place as part of a recent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre and Fenin. The purpose of the MoU is to identify, develop and deliver innovation in digital health and care for both partners, their respective networks and countries (Scotland and Spain).
The focus is to develop a common framework to boost digital health and care ecosystems where Industry, R+D+I Institutes and Health Care Services from both countries would collaborate to promote not only a better and more mature adoption of Smart Health Technologies but also formulate new methods of knowledge co-creation, innovation and cross-border entrepreneurship.
Scotland’s Healthy Ageing Innovation Cluster has been identified as an ideal starting point. With our populations growing and living longer, we often find them having more than one long-term medical condition to manage. Scotland has a powerful collaboration of shared strategic interests and common endeavour to address the biggest challenges and opportunities in ageing. It would be excellent to learn from Fenin’s experience and see what opportunities could present for Spanish and Scottish businesses to contribute to this agenda.
