As a consequence of an ageing population, the rising costs for (care) services and recent budget cuts, countries around the North Sea move from a care system whereby the state regulates, cares and pays to one that facilitates a civil society that is based on solidarity and community. Looking for new strategies, decision makers have directed attention to informal care and voluntary assistance.

In For Care aims to develop innovation in service delivery by optimizing informal and formal networks to address these challenges.
It will explore new cooperative ways in which the market, the public and the civil sector will provide answers to the social demands and strengthen the informal networks through new technologies.

In For Care is a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.
