Large Success of the Third European Conference "Silver Economy in Europe 2007" in Seville

The topic "Silver Economy in Europe" was addressed at the 3rd European Silver Economy conference which attracted around 500 participants from all over Europe.
Following the previous conferences in Bonn (North Rhine-Westphalia) and Maastricht (Limburg) the event was the third annual conference of a SEN@ER (Silver Economy Network of European Regions) partner region which - supported by the other network partner regions – which addressed important topics of ageing societies and the challenges and opportunities related to this. The approx. 50 presentations from all over Europe provided the participants with a very good and detailed overview of ongoing activities, innovative projects and practical examples of the Silver Economy. During the second conference day the award of the good practice competition "Silver Economy in Europe 2007" was handed over to an undertaking located in Limousin, one of the SEN@ER partner regions. It is called Pôle Domotique et Santé de Guéret St-Vaury’ (‘House automation and health of Guéret’). Guéret is the main city in Creuse, which is one out of three departments in Limousin.
