The SAIL project is funded by the European Commission and will run until 2020. The project team is comprised of members from the Netherlands, Belgium, France and the UK. SAIL is using the concepts of social innovation and co-creation to develop a range of projects that each aim to help older people stay active and independent for longer. To achieve this the project aims to create new and more usually partnerships between the health and leisure sectors. Each of these partnerships will work with end users from the start of their project to ensure the initiative responds effectively to their needs. Unlike other partners the project team at Bournemouth University are not delivering a project to older people. Instead they are drawing together the learning from all 11 initiatives and managing the feasibility study for this international project. The team will be using Expertise Management Methodology (EMM) and working with Prof Hans de Bruin from HZ University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands. EMM has been developed to explore complex real-life situations.
