(ANSA) - TRIESTE - The first Regional Stakeholders Workshop of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region within the EU Project ITHACA (InnovaTion in Health And Care for All) was organised in Trieste on 10 July and was attended by representatives of various health-related institutions, a CEI statement reported. This event is the first of series of regional meetings envisaged to take place during the 5-year project ITHACA is financed under 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 for active and healthy ageing. It will incorporate inter-regional collaboration, involving a wide range of expert stakeholders. The CEI is dealing with the overall management and implementation of the Project on behalf of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.

During the meeting, the self-assessment tool was introduced: it is one of the main instruments of the project designed to assess the existent regional ecosystems on smart health and care and, ultimately, to measure regional development.

The participants had the chance to share views and make suggestions such as the possibility of involving third sector organisations in the project, as well as a number of potential benefits stakeholders from health-related companies through the existing clusters. (ANSA).
