How can innovative technology be scaled to support healthy and active ageing in Scotland and across Europe?
TITTAN (Technology, Innovation and Translation in Ageing Network) aims to implement good practices related to the design, uptake and use of innovative technology-based products and solutions for healthy and active ageing. The project also aims to support the development of regional policy in technology-enabled healthcare. There are 7 partners involved in the project. ACIS in Galicia are the lead partner. The other partners are Saxony, Lower Silesia, Basque Region, Lombardy and Almere and Scotland.
“[Healthy and active aging is] a major societal challenge common to all European Countries”.
