We do not tire of saying how proud the AER is of being a partner of the SEED Project!
Following the 2017 General Assembly in Sankt Pölten (AT) – which was an important milestone in terms of promotion –, AER would like now to share with member regions more information being the time for the launching of new activities concerning the Silver Economy Awards.
On the occasion of the 2017 Autumn Plenary in Nancy (FR), the AER will take this opportunity to promote the Awards providing key information on the application process and encouraging the participation among the AER network. To this end, just as it happened at the General Assembly, the AER team will set up an info stand accessible to all the participants during the three-day event.
AER wants member regions to submit all the great experiences they are sharing on how regional authorities and stakeholders are committed and innovative in this field.
The third webinar edition is almost here!
Save the dates: Thursday 21st September from 11 AM to 12 PM CEST
On this occasion, 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 SEED Consortium is organizing on the 10th of October, within the 2017 European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC), a joint event titled “An alternative for the future: Silver Economy for cities and regions” which will be open to the participation of all audiences.
This workshop will take its participants through four inspiring examples of how a Silver Economy can help regions and cities to better match the needs of their ageing population while supporting local businesses and solution providers. It will be the opportunity to discuss the complementarity between these examples and the initiatives at EU level. The networking session that follows will bring together potential partners around issues related to the Silver Economy.

What’s in for regions?
The Silver Economy Awards is a unique opportunity to enhance both the visibility and recognition of Silver Economy in the Digital Era. The aim is none other than to reward ICT-based innovative solutions that improve the lives of European seniors, and thus support the growth of this cross-cutting sector across Europe.
From our perspective, this initiative can definitely contribute to heightening awareness on the opportunities of the European Silver Economy. On top of this, SEED project represents a good achievement for AER within the project side, having a big potential for the three Committees and member regions both in terms of content and activities.
Do not miss the opportunity to apply! The deadline to submit proposals is set for November 15th.
