WHAT IS D-CARE ABOUT?

The recent unfavourable demographic processes left their significant stamp on the whole Danube region. Mobility opportunities left whole regions without young, qualified persons seeking better opportunities in urban areas or abroad. At the same time a growing number of older adults are living by themselves, oftentimes in rural areas. The demand for care services is therefore on the rise while qualified personnel is largely lacking. In order to revive the regions and to encourage young people to stay part of the regional labor market and at the same time guarantee the access to general services for the older population we need new, innovative and cross-sectoral solutions for health and care.

Therefore D-CARE action is focused on establishing a transnational cooperation network that design Innovative Learning Environments for older adults 55+, in 9 Danube regions, in order to facilitate the creation, validation and deployment of smart care services in the context of smart care labs. In the labs we involve stakeholders from businesses, academia, politics and administration as well as end users to catalyze an innovation process that is efficient and otimally targeted at user needs. Our project will strenghten and integrate regional social and healthcare systems by improving competences and generating innovative smart care models. Thereby, we can capitalize on the potential of Danube region‘s increasingly changing and diverse population and become a role model of innovative societal change engineering.

The project vision is applied from the consortium building stage. This means that it envisages a strategic integration at horizontal, vertical and geographical levels: i.e competences, activities and sectors.

Our main activities:

The project addresses the upper mentioned societal challenges through its three main action pillars:

  1. Innovative Learning Networked Environments
  2. Smart Care Pilots deployed in 5 project regions for developing, testing, validating and implementing of smart care models
  3. Transnational Policy Learning Center for smart care policies design

Through D-CARE results, 8 Danube regions will have improved capacities and skills to meet the health and care needs of their older population and offer attractive employment opportunities for the younger.
