Across the North Sea Region many people are experiencing social isolation and  loneliness. The public sector is struggling to address such a complex problem. Finding a solution requires action from many different agencies.

I2I will focus on innovation in service delivery (including utilising new technologies such as serious gaming, apps, chatbots, VR/AR) through bringing organisations together and co-creating solutions with the target groups.

The overall objective in I2I is to enhance innovation in social service delivery to improve social inclusion and counteract loneliness in NSR communities and neighbourhoods.
