The Silver Economy Awards is a new initiative to reward ICT-based innovative solutions that improve the lives of European seniors and support the growth of the European Silver Economy. Serving as a catalyst to stimulate a sustainable Europewide digital Silver Economy movement, the Awards promote and reward innovative and creative ideas that have proven benefits for people aged 50 and above. The call for applications opens on 8 June 2017 and deadline for receiving applications is on 15 November 2017.
The Silver Economy Awards consists of three award categories: 

  • Public Authority,
  • Non-for-profit organisation and 
  • For-profit organisation. 

Innovative solutions and applications are welcomed from the broad spectrum of areas that make up the European Silver Economy. All applicants will benefit from online publication on the Silver Economy website and winners and finalists will be invited to showcase their product or service at the high-levelled Award Ceremony in spring 2018, where they will be celebrated for their achievements.
In a dedicated webinar, SEED consortium members will explain the aim of the Award Scheme and where and how to apply for the first edition of Silver Economy Awards. Benefits and possible outcomes for those that will apply will be highlighted and some time will be also dedicated to answer questions from potential applicants.
The webinar is targeted to all those who are interested in submitting an application, i.e. public authorities (e.g. city, town, region, province), non-for profit actors (e.g. civil
society organisation, university) and for-profit actors (e.g. entrepreneurs, service providers, SMEs).
