One of the great challenges of agriculture in SUDOE is to deal with the consequences of climate change, in particular the increasingly early droughts. Freshwater availability will continue to decline, making the agricultural sector, highly dependent on water resources, particularly vulnerable. Therefore, conditions must be created to promote the resilience of agriculture by improving the use of an increasingly scarce resource. To meet this challenge, the digital transformation of agriculture is essential. In support of this transition, SMART GREEN WATER project partners will promote the implementation of smart specialisation strategies (S3) for a more sustainable agricultural sector based on increasing the sector’s digital capacities, thus strengthening the socio-economic fabric of rural areas. Thanks to transnational cooperation, the project partners will take advantage of the wealth of diverse contexts: regions of Spain and Portugal where historical water shortages have favored their collective management, while, in southwestern France, irrigation is more recent and individual. The proposed solutions, tested through pilot and transferable actions, to the different contexts, will allow to identify the best tools to meet the needs of farmers. Innovative irrigation optimisation technologies will be consolidated and disseminated through experimentation in partner regions. In short, digital tools will be made more accessible through a transnational training programme and the link between innovative companies and the agricultural sector. The transnational strategy developed and validated thanks to proven solutions will connect innovation ecosystems and public administrations with the agricultural sector as an end user. Support for digitalisation will ensure a more water-efficient agricultural sector and rural territories that are more resilient to the effects of climate change.


While manufacturing companies place innovation as a top priority to address the environmental crisis, most lack solutions tailored to current and future challenges to be implemented at their facilities. In addition, as innovation in a corporate environment is quickly hampered by the complexity and duration of implementation, innovation is now shifting towards start-ups. This global landscape is also necessary for the SUDOE area, where the capacity for innovation in industrial ecosystems must be improved. To this end, the SCAIRA project aims to develop a personalised training program to support the creation and acceleration of new companies in rural areas for the green transition of the production sector focused on the Aerospace and Automotive sector. Both sectors have a historical anchor in the SUDOE field with a significant number of companies to accompany in their transition. SCAIRA’s ambition is to create and attract new economic assets in rural areas while providing innovative responses to industries in green manufacturing and reducing their environmental footprint. SCAIRA will be developed by 5 incubators (2 beneficiaries of research infrastructures) located in rural areas of Portugal, Spain and France, contributing their experience and best practices to the project. Industrial, territorial and environmental challenges will be identified and defined by 5 clusters of partners’ regional ecosystems. The various clusters, Airbus Atlantic and the industry involved, will complete the program by providing their expertise and knowledge in industrialisation, market analysis, and customer and investor identification. Beyond the project, 45 start-ups will be created and accelerated that will benefit from long-term support through their regional incubator and participation in relevant clusters. The SCAIRA project will restore the attractiveness of the production sector and rural areas, while increasing business culture and labour well-being in the production sector.


The SUDOE is a demographically aged territory that in its interior rural areas presents a situation of increasing depopulation leading to their disappearance. Examples of these territories with low population density are the regions of Castile and Leon (Spain), Beira Baixa (Portugal) and Pays Basque (France). COVID has made clear the health and care gaps for people in these rural settings, especially elderly and dependent people. On the other hand, the difficulty of finding niche markets in which to develop sustainable economic activity, leads young people and highly qualified professionals to leave for cities, further weakening the interior rural environment SUDOE. The common challenge and need of these inland rural areas is to revitalise their economic and social fabric, enhancing employment opportunities that solve societal challenges from the perspective of innovation, combining social needs with development opportunities. Revital seeks to cover the need to provide specialised health care and physical and neurological rehabilitation services (especially to dependents and older people), through technological tools that allow to offer tele-care and tele-rehabilitation services, which will also help to create qualified employment and establish a new population that will energise the rural economy. The project has a clear strategic orientation towards strengthening social cohesion and territorial and demographic balance through social innovation and endogenous development. The challenges and needs to be met are clear: respond to the depopulation and ageing of inland rural areas by establishing a new population with socio-health training, preventing elderly and dependent people from having to migrate to urban areas to access advanced clinical services, as well as developing sustainable production systems based on tele-assistance and tele-rehabilitation technologies, responding to the social needs not sufficiently met in the area of social and health care services.


Europe is moving towards an ageing society, with the SUDOE territory, and specifically rural environments, with the highest percentage of elderly and depopulation. Ageing leads to the emergence of fragility and disability, associated with the increased use of health resources and hospital admissions. France, Spain, Portugal and Andorra have different models of elderly patient care based on the prevention of the onset of disability, with strengths and points of improvement. The main achievements will allow the implementation of a model that reduces the imbalance between regions in the management of the prevention of hospital disability and in the transition of the patient to Primary Care (AP) and their family environment, establishing an integrated and coordinated model among professionals, facilitated by the use of technology and the promotion of healthy aging, in order to improve health care, strengthening the resilience of health systems. The cooperation will allow the joint development of new integrated care strategies that promote better monitoring and coordination of the care of the elderly, homogenising protocols and methodologies. Thus (i) a multicenter clinical trial will be carried out that will show the benefits of a training program during hospitalisation ii)the continuity of the program and the transition to PA of the hospitalised patient and of the one who goes to the consultation of the specialist from rural environments implementing innovative technology will be facilitated, and iii) the model of active aging in rural settings will be promoted and equal access to health will be promoted through coordination models between professionals facilitated by the use of technological tools, avoiding unnecessary displacement and income. PreDisc is innovative because it develops a novel care model that will improve the quality of life of elderly people and promote equal access to health care, with the participation of different key actors such as reference hospitals, PA teams and other Public Health Organisations to achieve their sustainability.


In Spain, only 49.2 % of patients receive them of the total number of people in need of palliative care (PC). In France, 85 % of people would like to die at home, yet only 37 % do. In Portugal, the Portuguese Association of CP has warned that some 70.000 people do not have access to them. And yet, such care is crucial as it makes it possible to control symptoms, which is an ethical obligation to alleviate and respect people’s dignity. When applied at home, patients experience greater well-being. Henko means in Japanese profound and transformational change. Thus, Henko NET aims to create a knowledge community to strengthen palliative care systems and carry out an organizational transformation, by promoting innovation and the adoption of innovative digital technologies that will enable patient home care on a continuous basis and also in rural areas. To this end, the partners will design a joint strategy and action plan aimed at promoting an innovative attitude among professionals, advanced training and an exchange of good practices in new care models and the adoption of effective digital technologies. One of the most innovative results will be the development of the artificial intelligence-based Henko platform for early detection of the need for CP and the anticipation of unwanted events (medical or social). This will allow better organisation of care, more effective home monitoring and reduction of hospitalisations. The process of developing the tool will involve the active participation of patients, family members and professionals and will be piloted with 100 patients to determine its effectiveness and efficiency. Cooperation between the beneficiaries of the three countries (ES, FR and PT) is essential since innovation is very low in this area, so that expanding the work scenario at transnational level will allow sufficient knowledge for the development of the solutions.


The STOP-iatro project brings together a consortium of 6 entities from 3 European countries. The project aims to ensure that professionals involved in care for older patients are aware of the risks associated with iatrogeny (adverse effects associated with care and care on people’s health). The objective of the project is to adopt collective strategies to avoid complications associated with care and care that could lead to the loss of autonomy of the elderly, based in particular on the recommendations of the WHO (ICOPE programme). Indeed, the COVID pandemic has particularly affected fragile populations, including the elderly. The negative effects are mainly due to increased barriers to access to essential health services and to the deterioration of the quality of patient care. Despite the existence of national recommendations on the prevention of adverse reactions to care or medicinal products in the territories of the consortium, there has been a clear setback in their implementation. These recommendations, mostly established before the COVID crisis, no longer take into account the current constraints on hospital or primary care actors. Our project is structured around several axes. The first axis aims to identify the obstacles and factors to the implementation of recommendations related to the prevention of iatrogenic dependence, but also to establish a state of knowledge of the professionals identified in the chain. . The second axis is aimed at offering a non-segregated territorial strategy immediately, which breaks down the barriers between city and hospital and is multiprofessional, through innovative methods of collective and social intelligence. The third axis will be to develop training plans on the prevention of iatrogenic dependence. Finally, the fourth axis will allow pilot actions identified jointly by territorial actors for professionals and patients.
