Objective

INNOVATEDIGNITY is a trans-national network that aims to deliver a shared, world-leading research and training programme to educate the next generation of thought leaders with the necessary research experience and transferable skills to deliver innovations in dignified, sustainable care systems for older people, including new care models and digital applications. INNOVATEDIGNITY’s research examines older peoples' perspectives of care systems with a specific focus on dignity, investigates the potential for digital applications, and analyses gender issues to provide crucial, urgently needed knowledge for sustainable and fit for purpose care that supports older people to live well. The network's programme of investigation: 1) Critically evaluates existing care systems and provide analyses that make use of older persons’ insights.
2) Examines and offers a range of conceptual, empirical and methodological conditions to develop new innovations, including digital technology that offer dignity in care. 3) Provides an analysis of impacts of new care models on the wellbeing of older people. 4) Critically examines impacts of gender on care delivery, on the leadership of caring and science careers, and the care workforce with insights for sustainability. INNOVATEDIGNITY addresses the European problem of how ageing people can live well in caring systems with a concentration on cross-disciplinary scholarship, producing an evidence base through fifteen PhD projects, interlinked with a series of integrated assignments, and supported by a coherent interdisciplinary training. INNOVATEDIGNITY will produce leaders well versed in innovating care from standpoints within and beyond ‘healthcare’, sectors that engage technology, the public, policy makers for the benefit of older people in Europe beyond the consortium nations.
