The Liaison agency Flanders-Europe (vleva) and the Kent County Council, on behalf of the Social Inclusion Regional Group (SIRG), cordially invite you to the conference for the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations 2012 titled “Social Innovation and Independent Living”.
The goal of this conference is to help participants gain a comprehensive view on the importance of actions at regional and local level to promote social innovation in elderly care in Europe and to understand the barriers and obstacles to the provision of care at home and in residential settings. In the plenary session we will look at the risks and opportunities for social innovation in independent living. Workshops in the afternoon will show best practices from across Europe on how to increase the autonomy of the elderly, technological support for those in need, integrated care coordination and active ageing and minority groups.
Through this event, participants can interact with colleagues and professionals in the field and initiate dialogues for best practice sharing and potential partnerships.
Please notice that this event requires a registration, find registration link in the program in the right column.
