Technology has been such a sudden disruption to our lives that adapting to new realities has become increasingly urgent. Far too frequently, however, we have demanded from minorities and underserved populations to get on board this moving train without bothering to make it more accessible for them considering their capabilities, their reality and their often-overheard needs. This situation, the source of a gap yet to close, generates reluctance towards the digital revolution, and sometimes prevents us from seeing that riding the fast wave of technology has the potential to humanise care, improve quality of life, and boost personal independence.
In the Soluciones Innovadoras para la Vida Independiente (SIVI) Cluster, technology companies, university research groups, technology centres and service industries join together in a collective effort to promote social innovation as the key to progress for a population group that has been neglected and deprived from the means to thrive in these changing times we are living in.
With initiatives such as this International Fair of Innovation and Technology-Enabled Care Services (FITECU) this solution based on the design, development and use of innovative technological solutions gain visibility thanks to international experts who combine their skills and expertise with an invaluable asset in the pursuit of social progress: sensitivity. Let’s make technology more human, and it will become the real life-disruptor.
To approach the last trends on social innovation and groundbreaking enabling technologies focused on care services.
It is part of the Push HUB SIVI Programme organised by the Family and Equality Department of the Regional Government of Castilla y León to support the SIVI Cluster.
