European Synthesis Report of research results on SHAFEThe key findings from France, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Portugal and The Netherlands on Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE) are being brought together in this freshly released European Synthesis Report. The report focuses on the most relevant facts and figures with the aim to arrive at recommendations for contents and methods for training packages from a European comparative perspective.

Early 2020, six comprehensive national reports have been elaborated to inform the general public and the project partners about current practices, problems and potential solutions of SHAFE in France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland and Portugal.

Besides an overview on the national context they describe existing SHAFE products and services as well as their target groups, gaps between their availability and usage, existing implementation support offers and their funding. With special regards to facilitators who want to start their own company, the BUSINESS chapter informs about SHAFE areas which are appropriate for this intention, main regulation, support offers and stakeholders for starting a business, available training concepts and examples of good training practice. Based on this information, conclusions were drawn on appropriate strategies regarding the training and support of the target groups.

Examples of good practice for the application and implementation of user-centred services and products in the realms of SMART, BUILT and HEALTHY, described in the national reports are published in the European Compendium of Good Practices on SHAFE that can be also used in training measures.
