The next ICT4SILVER workshop will receive testimonials from local companies and organisations on the development of Silver Economy related products in Europe.
Entitled “SME experiences when testing their products/services in transnational markets”, a new workshop will be held on Tuesday 4 December, open to the public at the Gaia headquarters in Bilbao. The event, which you can attend after registering, will try to bring together the experiences of several local companies that develop products and services, including Ideable, in order to respond to the needs of the European Silver Economy market.
Four organisations and projects have joined forces in organising this workshop. On the one hand, the European project ICT4SILVER, which was founded in 2016 with the aim of applying technological innovation in the ageing process, within the framework of southwest Europe.
Another major stakeholder in the combo is the GAIA Electronic and Information Technology Cluster in the Basque Country, which will share with attendees several of their success stories, as is the case of Ideable with Kwido.
To close the loop, Grupo SSI is participating with its innovation division, Home Care Lab, in addition to the Basque Country’s leading technology corporation, Tecnalia.
The aims of the ICT4SILVER workshop are to present the project to the attendees, and to give examples of the support provided to participating stakeholders in the form of pilot projects and living labs. Following the presentation of testimonials, we will discuss the methodologies used, the support received by the project and the identification of possible improvements for the future.
Ideable will focus on Kwido, as one of the solutions selected to be tested in real environments in different European countries. The tests have focused on remote health monitoring functionalities, part of telemedicine services, and the pilot tests have been carried out at the Agence de Développement et d’Innovation de la Nouvelle-Aquitaine (France) and Santa Casa Da Misericórdia Barcelos (Portugal) organisations.
To do this, Kwido has adapted to different versions and languages for the testing process in its international expansion, in order to achieve the same success that it already has in the national market.

Over the course of 2018 Ideable Solutions has held several breakfasts to share technological space and networking coffee.
This time the Ideable Breakfast on 27th November changes its format to a round table to discuss the situation of our industry in the digital age.
We are celebrating the end of the year for Ideable Breakfasts by changing its format to allow various managers from industrial companies to discuss the reality of the industry and its progress towards digitization.
Is there a 4.0 bubble? Are real savings being made thanks to automation/robotization?
We will try to shed light on the possibilities that technology offers the industry with the help of representatives from the industrial world:
- Elena Guede Vazquez (Plant Manager at Cementos Lemona),
- Xabier Uriagereka Pastor (Innovation Manager at I3S),
- José Ramón Ribate Riaño (Operations Manager at Ilunbe),
- Xabier Sabalza Laskurain (ex-Manager of Industry 4.0 at Lortek),
- Francisco García (Area Manager at GE-Opertek),
- Galder Vizcaya Ugarte (Industrial Manager at ZIV Automation),
- Enrique Paramá (Marketing Manager at Lantek),
- Elias Unzueta Etxeita (Innovation Manager at Petronor).
The round table will be moderated by Luis Blanco Urgoiti (General Secretary of Aveq-Kimika).
As well as the questions posed by the moderator, we also hope that the audience will ask the speakers some questions.
The idea for this session arose from the need to create a space for reflection. It is clear that Digital Transformation is becoming increasingly present throughout our industrial world, but it gives rise to great doubts (speed of advances and extent), as well as inconsistencies between industries, and even within companies in the same industry.
We also hope that this round table will clarify whether it is true that there is no alternative to this technological tsunami which will significantly change the way things are done (new business models). We will even be able to find out about needs in terms of human resource skills/capacities.
This round table will take place the day after Ideable participates with its own stand at “Basque Industry 4.0: Meeting point” organized by SPRI in Bilbao.
Prior to this, on 20th November, Ideable is taking part in another round table, with the industry focussing on ‘Does Digital Transformation Exist?’, organised by the Official Association of Engineering Graduates and Industrial Engineers of Bizkaia to reflect on what Digital Transformation implies for the industry.
Later, on 29th November, Ideable and Alegi Team are then organizing another session with the name ‘Active Ageing and Technology’ to give visibility to the elderly and technology.
This breakfast closes the 2018 Ideable Breakfast programme, in which we have had the chance to involve relevant external stakeholders in the technology adoption process. We have also been able to share concerns with our customers and friends about a constantly and infinitely changing world.
