Fórum Collective Transfer: Silver Economy.

On the 6th of December, ICT4Silver consortium have collaborated with Fraunhofer AICOS hosting decision makers from companies with a technological base or intensive knowledge in the field of ICT to support active aging, for a forum dedicated to knowledge transfer in this field.

The initiative “Fórum Collective Transfer: Silver Economy”, organized by AICOS in collaboration with the ICT4Silver consortium, combines a program to disseminate, exhibit and transfer scientific knowledge and technologies which resulted from the applied research developed by Fraunhofer AICOS, and the experience of the ICT4SILVER consortium in implementing and running ICT pilots in living labs.


The event featured emerging technologies and the testimony of SMBs who participated in the ICT4SILVER pilots, describing the advantages of the real environment in which the tests were carried out, the benefits of achieving trials with similar methodologies in three different countries and the relevance recommendations received.

In addition, a workshop was held at the facilities of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Barcelos, which hosted the ICT4SILVER pilots in Portugal, demonstrating the products and methodologies used in the experiment.
