Aged Living Technology Competition

Cork County Council together with the Cork Smart Gateway Initiative and the Age Friendly Alliance launched the €80k Small Business Research and Innovation (SBIR) Challenge with Enterprise Ireland on 13/4/17.  Through this Challenge call, Cork County Council wishes to explore low cost, innovative and accessible solutions that will help all of its older citizens to maintain a good quality of life and enable them to remain and feel secure in their home. Solutions sought should address one or more of the effects of being / feeling isolated and insecure and in particular increase the resilience of older people to respond to the impacts of critical events.  The competition is open to any organisation, university and service providers. Interested parties can apply on eTenders, closing date 2/6/17.  For details of the information session on 28/4/17 and other queries, contact
