The European Interreg IVC project CASA is about the development of regional policy and exchange of knowledge around the upscaling of innovative ICT. Many European countries are facing an unsustainable situation as citizens across the continent are living longer, resulting in demographic changes that are placing increasing pressure on health and social care.
Demographic changes make it necessary to organise the care and housing of senior citizens and the chronically ill in a smarter way including the use of ICT. This also gives opportunities for innovative companies to develop their new tools and services.
SEHTA is one of the 14 partner regions and was chosen because of its expertise in the field of telecare and telehealth and its experience of working on major European projects. After a SWOT analysis and benchmarking, SEHTA is involved in a range of international activities, including workshops and study visits.
The CASA project comprises 14 participating organisations from 13 European regions: Flanders (Belgium) as Lead Partner, Noord-Brabant (the Netherlands), Kent County and Scotland (United Kingdom), Veneto Region and Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Italy), Southern Denmark, Wielkopolska (Poland), Catalonia and Andalucia (Spain), Timis County (Romania), East-Sweden and the Region Halland (Sweden).
The Interreg IVC projects INNOVAge and CASA present their results in Brussels on 7th October 2014
SEHTA was recently invited to present the results of the pilot actions and policy work on assisted living technologies and services during the joint CASA/Innovage conference in Brussels on 7th October. Over 200 participants from 30 countries provided recommandations to the European Commission for addition funds to be directed towards this sector. Both projects are co-funded under the INTERREG IVC programme.

The CASA UK Local Dissemination Event took place on 2nd December 2013 at the Ashford International. This event was organised by Kent County Council and SEHTA and brought together just over 100 participants in Kent to discuss “Best Practices in AAL”. A marketplace of companies from the South East also took place, which allowed those companies to showcase their products and services.
