The new project Europe Enabling Smart Healthy Age-friendly environments (EU-SHAFE) will be officially launched in Aarhus (Denmark) on 23 September 2019 during the AAL Forum. The project is funded by INTERREG Europe and is coordinated by the Provincial Council of Bizkaia. The University of Deusto is one of the 10 partners of the project.
The EU-SHAFE project will improve policies and practices in 7 European regions by developing a comprehensive approach to Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE). Through a 'learning by sharing' methodology, this robust multi-disciplinary and intersectoral consortium will build a four-helix European community to exchange experiences and practices to improve multilevel policy instruments.The project will create a cooperative, inclusive ecosystem between public authorities, European networks and user’s associations, embedding their experience and skills with research & design knowledge from academia and SMEs for the growth of community-based services and “ageing at home” around Europe.
