Design Department of the Art Academy of Latvia (AAL) takes part at the project “BaltSe@nior”, implemented within the framework of the Baltic Sea Region program Interreg.
The main idea of the project is to support the citizens of the Baltic Sea Region who are or will be seniors, who take care of our loved ones in elderly age and would love to give them the best care, comfort and safety they deserve. The problem of aging of societies was unnoticed and neglected for many years. The market offer of products adapted to seniors needs is fragmentary, or almost doesn’t exist. Now it’s time to change that. In order to tackle this huge demographic challenge the Baltic Sea Region needs to be strong in transnational cooperation and cross-sectional specialization. Experts from different BSR countries and various disciplines will work together to transform this challenge into fascinating business opportunity for enterprises in our region. With broad competencies of leading BSR actors in the field of furniture, design, technology, ICT and robotics, economy and social sciences project partners will develop stateofart solutions making BSR stronger.
