The TITTAN project (Translation, Innovation & Technology Transfer in Ageing Network) – conducted in collaboration with the Digital Health & Care Institute – aims to establish a knowledge exchange network between 7 European regions with the aim of fostering innovation and technology transfer in the field of ‘eHealth for Healthy Ageing’.
The specific objective is to exchange knowledge and share implementation good practice among the partner regions regarding the development of policies aiming to foster design, uptake and use of innovative technology-based products, services and solutions for healthy and active aging.
