SILVER SMEs held its final conference on 21 February 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.

The event was an opportunity to explore the challenges of ageing in rural and mountainous areas and to discover how partners have successfully boosted the development of the Silver Economy in response to these challenges.

From training and communication with entrepreneurs to the creation of calls dedicated to SMEs and the integration of the Silver Economy as a territorial development axis, partners of the SILVER SMEs project managed to find solutions adapted to each of their territories in order to develop the Silver Economy, for the benefit of the older rural population. 

4 discussion sessions guided participants through the challenges linked to ageing in rural areas, the demographic policies of the European Union and the concrete measures implemented in our territories to help the development of the Silver Economy.
