BaltSe@nioR 2.00

BaltSe@nioR 2.00 is- as the project title indicates a project that builds upon knowledge and experience from BaltSe@nioR 1.00

The purpose of the project is- across countries around the Baltic sea to support furniture- and interior companies and public municipalities and organisations with knowledge and tools for them to make better and more senior friendly public spaces.

One of the main tasks for Lifestyle & Design Cluster is to further develop the online knowledge platform Virtual Library focusing on seniors, their needs and preferences for furniture for both own home and public spaces. You can gain free access to Virtual Library here:

Furthermore we are responsible for establishing networking groups consisting of  municipalities, Furniture manufacturers operating within the contract market and with seniors as final target group, elderly organizations, researchers and other actors interested in discussing needs, best practice in relation to senior friendly public spaces. Can we work with public procurement in order to make them focus on both sustainability and more senior friendly  furniture and interior.  We are also going to work with social business models, and visiting some of the best practice public seniorfriendly spaces.

There will also be established a international network of actors across the Baltic Sea. The networking groups will take their starting point in the needs of the participants.
