  4. Silver Economy-Turning the Silver Tsunami into a Silver Lining

    Project

     The number of ageing population will increase. The EU and WHO have launched programs aimed to answer the challenges of aging population and at the same time to change the idea of ​​an elderly as a burden to society. According the idea of Silver Economy, population aging is seen as an economical opportunity. Growth of Silver Economy will open new opportunities for product and service development in many industries. According to the EU programs, the target group of Silver Economy will cover citizen over the age of 55. Many existing services and products do not in themselves serve the needs of ageing population. Better suitable services and products will support and strengthen older consumer’s functional ability and quality of life. Supporting older citizens´ functional ability is significant to whole society.In Finland, research, development and innovation activities practised at universities of applied sciences promote not only working life and regional development but also renew the regional economic structure. The higher education institutions are also anticipating competences required for future competitiveness. Investing in Silver Economy will require companies to have business and product development skills to align and develop their services to this new customer group.The aim of the Silver Economy development in North Karelia is based on assumption that the growth in the silver economy will open up new opportunities for business and service development in various industries. The aim is to provide SMEs information about Silver Economy and Age-friendly services as well as skills for developing their services to meet better the ageing population needs.

  6. Project management tools supporting the competitiveness and well-being of freelancers and SMEs

    Project

     Freelancing is rapidly becoming the new norm in many areas of business including IT, journalism, consulting, and many creative industries. Many tasks that were previously carried out in-house by companies or publicly funded organizations, are now being outsourced to networks of freelance contractors. This change has both positive and negative implications for individuals. On the other hand, self-employed individuals frequently have more control over the scope and execution of their work supporting well-being and work-life balance. On the other hand, many individuals who have previously worked for companies, now face a potentially distressing situation in which they have to become freelancers in order to avoid unemployment.PMTOOLS project offers support to freelancers (including individuals considering of becoming a freelancer) and SME’s by developing and disseminating research-based and free-to-use project management guidelines. These guidelines will support the target group in their efforts to secure customer projects, executing them efficiently, and managing their customer relationships. In addition, the workshops and training events organized during the project support the participants in developing their business networks that constitute a vital source of competitive advantage.
