Minister Damien English launches the Homes for Smart Ageing Universal Design Challenge.

The Homes for Smart Ageing Universal Design Challenge (HSAUDC) was launched in the Custom House on the 31st January 2017 by Mr Damien English T.D., Minister for Housing and Urban Renewal.

This initiative is aimed at the design and construction industries with the challenge being to create innovatively designed and delivered housing solutions for the elderly.

Considering that the ageing population is increasing with the number of people over the age of 65 expected to reach 1.4 million by 2041, the objective of the HSAUDC is to develop ideas that will improve the quality of life for older persons in Ireland.

The main criteria to be met in the challenge is to propose an idea that can be presented as a solution that is feasible, cost effective and has the potential to be mainstreamed into the future in support of smart ageing solutions.
