Innovative ideas spark a revolution | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

Radical ideas with the potential to revolutionise the current approach to long-term care are being funded by the UK’s innovation agency, the Technology Strategy Board. The successful projects include 'Flourish: Inspirational aging', which focuses on on reframing the concept of need, moving away from a care system that concentrates on providing physical support towards one that focuses on positive wellbeing. Flourish is a collaboration between Digital Laundry, Northumbria University, Stockholm Environment Institute, University of York; ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society, University of Oxford; and Cedilla Publishing.
