European population ageing has brought about challenges for European social welfare and financial systems. While access to long-term care for older populations is one of the social benefits that Europe takes pride in, due to different barriers, access to these services is not always optimal.
The SoCaTeL project proposes an approach that will cater to the needs of the growing ageing populations in Europe by improving the accessibility, responsiveness, efficiency, transparency and transferability of social and care services. The project is developing a useful, transparent and easy-to-use platform following a quadruple-helix approach, in which service users, care professionals, researchers and innovators can collaborate throughout the process.
A virtual policy roundtable hosted by project partners, Tampere University and City of Tampere, examines the impact of the project and co-creation interventions and, moreover, makes policy recommendations for future development based on the results of the project.
