The AppSam focuses on dementia care and the relevant applied digital technology. The project was funded (2016-2017) by the Swedish Institute and the Swedish Institute Baltic Sea Cooperation programme. The overall purpose of the AppSam project was to develop a common understanding of the needs of dementia care in countries with different welfare models through cross-border collaboration. Through workshops, the activities lead to the development of concepts, for example an integrated tool to support dementia care, that reflects what can be done together in the different regions. The concepts developed serve as a mediator between partners and support for future projects. The activities also develop inter-disciplinary professional. A Social Innovation collaborative cross-border model has been developed through the AppSam project.
