They looked into ways to improve the life of older people living in big cities; they did so by exploring the urban facilities available that could support them. In this journey they created a large network on their own and found numerous E-Health companies and other urban-related solutions. By connecting existing networks within Asturias province and giving their advice on how to collaborate they created Value for the region, the elderly citizens and innovations in health care.
