Innovation. Smart specialisation


January 2019 – June 2021


The silver economy related to products and services aiming at the ageing society creates considerable business opportunities. The OSIRIS project designs an innovative cooperation model to improve smart specialisation approaches and market uptake of innovative products and services dedicated to ageing people, e.g. related to health, tourism or their built living environment. Smart Silver Labs in six regions around the Baltic Sea support innovation actors in generating new silver products and services viable to the market. The project sets up a Digital Silver Hub to ensure exchange of new knowledge and business schemes across the borders.
