Social Innovation: Better mobility of older people
Description of call
"Social Innovation: Better mobility of older people"
The aim of the prize is to improve the mobility of older people by providing innovative mobility solutions
allowing them to maintain independence and actively participate in social life. The solutions proposed should represent significant long-term improvements for specific target groups, such as elderly people living in isolated areas, or older persons with reduced mobility in urban areas. Applicants should also explain their solution’s impact with respect to the creation of new market opportunities and jobs e.g. in innovative small companies, transport operators, social economy start-ups or NGOs at local, regional or national level.
