The partners of the European interregional project TITTAN, (Translation, Innovation & Technology Transfer in Ageing Network) held the first meeting of the project in its second phase on September 9th in the Casa de Galicia in Madrid, with the aim of sharing experiences related to the implementation of their respective action plans. They were received by the delegate of the Xunta in Madrid and the director of the House, José Ramón Ónega, who wished them a fruitful day of work.

TITTAN´s aim is to exchange good practices between seven European regions to enhance innovation and technology transfer in the field of health.

The project, divided into two phases, is currently in the second phase which consists of the implementation of the plans drawn up during phase 1. The action plan of Galicia consists of the implantation of a network of Health Living Labs in the sanitary areas of Galicia, called LABSAÚDE. This initiative will convert the Galician hospitals and health centres into real environments for testing innovative solutions as a previous step to access the market.

During the meeting, the seven partners of the project presented the progress they have achieved so far in the implementation of the action plans, and addressed future activities related to the implementation of good practices in their respective regions.
