Senior Eco-Nect visits the Galician ecosystem

In November, the final ecosystem visit under Senior Eco-Nect took place in Galicia, Spain, organized by the Galician Health Cluster (CSG) alongside the project’s Mid-term Event and Forum RIES (#RIES23), an international forum discussing health ecosystem challenges and opportunities.

The visit started on November 6th in Lleida, where partners, accompanied by a Scottish delegation, participated in the Immersive 24H Experience at Gran3dad’s care home, a best practice case selected in the project’s Handbook.

On the second day, partners visited the Galician Regional Health Department, greeted by Sofía López, General Director of Planning and Health Reform, followed by a visit to CEGADI, an intermediate care center that includes a rehabilitation center and a future Living Lab, in Santiago de Compostela.

The consortium then traveled to Vigo, visiting the Living Lab AFAGA, with a showroom from the ITGALL network and presentations on sports and exercise projects shared between CSG and the Galician Sports Cluster. Next the Senior Eco-Nect partners visited Atendo Senior Living, with an overview of their project. The day concluded with an internal project meeting.

November 8th marked the beginning of #RIES23. The social visit (a boat ride along the Vigo Estuary) and a Business Lunch preceded the Senior Eco-Nect Mid-Term Event at 16:00h, where results were shared with an engaged audience. The day concluded with the #RIES23 Gala Dinner, during which CSG awarded the two best practice cases from Galicia included in the Handbook.

The last day focused on the #RIES23 keynotes, round tables, agoras, and project presentations, centered on Innovative care ecosystems, the theme for this year, very aligned with the Senior Eco-Nect project.
