Worldwide, the proportion of people aged 60 and over is growing faster than any other age group: this demographic change represents a challenge that needs to be met at transnational level, having a strong impact in the social and health services and in the labour market. The change of economic position of older people within the knowledge economy demands an innovative policy approach strengthening creative interaction among key player involved in the innovation development without anymore a fragmented division of competencies and an integration among policies are needed as well as major support to research and innovation infrastructures. SEE_INNOVA partnership considers AGEING as part of an overall strategy of mutually reinforced INNOVATION policies and regional competitiveness and it focus on the opportunities to help older people to live independently for longer in their own homes by increasing their autonomy and mobility; assisting them in carrying out their daily activities and improving their access to age-friendly ICTs. Despite the potential of independent living, its benefits and technical maturity is still limited because policymakers find difficulties in coordinating their policies and research programme and in defining an efficient integrated and multidisciplinary mechanism for a better connection of key innovation actors.
