Ageing in rural Europe: opportunities for local economies

Ageing in rural Europe: opportunities for local economies

21 February 2023
Brussels - Belgium

Our Interreg Europe project SILVER SMEs held its final conference on 21 February 2023 in Brussels.

The event was an opportunity to explore the challenges of ageing in rural and mountainous areas and to discover how partners have successfully boosted the development of the Silver Economy in response to these challenges.

From training and communication with entrepreneurs to the creation of calls dedicated to SMEs and the integration of the Silver Economy as a territorial development axis, partners of the SILVER SMEs project managed to find solutions adapted to each of their territories in order to develop the Silver Economy, for the benefit of the older rural population.

The conference gave the floor to partners in the 8 rural territories of the project as well as to representatives of European institutions.
