The objective of the RegioStars Awards is to identify good practices in regional development and highlight original and innovative projects which could be attractive and inspiring to other regions. CISMOB is a candidate for the ‘promoting digital transformation’ category. HoCare is competing in ‘modernising health services’ and SHARE is battling for the ‘building climate-resilient cities’ title.
This year's RegioStars award ceremony will take place in October during the 2019 European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels.
HoCare is tackling challenges posed by an aging population by attempting to unlock the great potential of innovative solutions in home care. How will they do this? By using a new cooperation model - the quadruple helix approach – and strengthening the cooperation of actors in regional innovation systems. In this model, government, industry, academia and civilians cooperate to innovate. This project brings together eight partners from different countries across Europe.
