Project launch: Innovation for Dementia in the Danube Region (INDEED)

The NPO & SE Competence Center is part of the recently launched project “Innovation for Dementia in the Danube Region (INDEED)”, which has been approved for funding under the 2nd call of the INTERREG Danube Transnational Programme (DTP). As one of the consequences of demographic change, dementia is a growing societal challenge in the Danube region. However, the region's quality of dementia care lags behind European standards in terms of knowledge, skills, and cooperation of healthcare professionals, availability of related services, and the use of assistive technology. Furthermore, the emigration of healthcare workers is an increasing concern.

Facing these challenges, INDEED is a collaborative effort of 20 partners in 10 European countries who share the common goal of improving Dementia care in the Danube Region. Contributing to the implementation of national dementia strategies, one of INDEED's prior objectives is to enhance the quality of life of dementia patients and their caregivers. To realise this goal, the interdisciplinary partnership creates a cross-border information and skill-building intervention covering important aspects from medicine, psychology, business, and information technology.

Under the 2nd call of the Interreg DTP, 22 out of 119 submitted proposals have been approved for funding. INDEED is one out of 6 projects that address the specific objective of increasing competences for business and social innovation (SO 1.2). The project has been launched on 1 July 2018 and runs for 3 years. Further information and continuous updates may be obtained from the project's webpage (http://www.interreg-danube.eu/approved-projects/indeed) and in FIDES (https://bach.wu.ac.at/d/research/projects/3224/). Furthermore we will keep you updated on our news feed and facebook page.
