ITHACA is co-financed by the Interreg EUROPE Programme.  It aims at refining regional policies in order to support innovative businesses, create growth and scale up the deployment of innovative health and care solutions. It will enhance the efficiency of regional ecosystems by supporting the development of effective and innovative health-related solutions for an active and healthy ageing population.

The project will incorporate interregional collaboration, involving a wide range of expert stakeholders that comprises exchange of good practices, mutual learning, peer assessment, knowledge transfer, targeted coaching and collective, co-designed policy development.

The results will be smarter healthcare policies and stronger regional and interregional ecosystems for the benefit of European citizens.

The CEI - Executive Secretariat is dealing with the overall management and implementation of the Project on behalf of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.
