Happy Aging

Happy Aging

Happy Aging is an integrated network and living lab for user centered innovation in elderly care. We offer a real life environment for companies and health care organizations to develop innovative concepts for elderly care.  Besides being a real life test environment, Happy Aging is also used to create new innovative ideas in co-creation with the elderly. This way we strengthen the effective implementation of these innovations. Happy Aging is a living lab consisting of lots of partners, each with their own expertise, including local authorities, care institutions, knowledge institutes, companies,…. This ensures that the necessary expertise (quadriple helix) is present.


The main purpose of the Happy Aging Living Lab is to develop innovative ideas, together with the elderly,  to make sure that the elderly can reside longer and with a higher quality of life, in their home environment. The ideas that are developed within Happy Aging Living Lab should also contribute to a strong economical environment and job creation in the region.
