The Department of Social Action of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia has launched the BIOKreto to respond to the need to identify proposals for intervention and socio-health and/or community strategies to prevent and minimise the risk of unwanted institutionalisation of dependent people whose care takes place at home, improving their quality of life and that of the non-professional carers who look after them and care for them.
The majority of people wish to grow old at home and to remain at home for as long as possible, even when they require support as a result of their state of dependency, and for the necessary support to be provided in their usual environment, their home and/or their community.
For this reason, the Bizkaia Provincial Council, in addition to managing care services of a residential nature, wishes to further its efforts in identifying strategies and proposals for healthcare and community intervention that minimise the risk of the unwanted institutionalisation of dependent persons and improve their quality of life, as well as that of their carers.
Through this challenge, the Bizkaia Provincial Council aims to identify new responses, niche strategies, and models for detecting specific groups of frail people in order to determine personalised strategies and initiatives for long-term care at home.
The winning team of the challenge will develop a pilot project and will have the opportunity to develop and validate an innovative solution together with the Department of Social Action of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia.
The call, which will be open until 20 January 2023, has a dataset of fictitious data that can be requested at any time through the bizkaiaok platform.
The winning team of the challenge will develop a pilot project valued at a maximum of €15,000 with the Department of Social Action and will have the opportunity to co-develop and validate an innovative solution in a real environment.
