Smart Silver Lab (SSL) Innovation Program was designed to support business and social innovation ideas in the sectors of silver economy across the Baltic Sea Region. The Innovation Program aimed to face the challenges of ageing populations through development of new products and services that meet the needs and create opportunities for senior citizens.
The Program included individualized mentoring, training sessions, as well as networking opportunities with entrepreneurs from other countries and the final pitch days.
