Addressing the challenges of tomorrow – today

Demographic change poses new challenges for our region.

In our healthcare activities, we support companies in their efforts to maintain their employees' health and we work to enable senior citizens to remain independent and live in their own homes longer. In cooperation with our partners, we are planning digital solutions that enhance the living environment in communities, care facilities and private homes and that involve players in the housing and real-estate market. The goal is to create a network of stakeholders and establish an information platform.

With these efforts, we contribute to the development and testing of ideas that pave the way for the future in our region.

  • Migration and health

    The German healthcare system provides for a large number of preventive measures. Lack of knowledge, as well as linguistic and cultural barriers, have led to a low rate utilization of health services among migrants. Based on an initiative by the Salzgitter AG, a joint project for equal access to health services for migrants is working to educate migrants about the availability of these preventive measures. The project is supported by the European Social Fund.

  • Compatibility of home care and career

    As a partner in the “Empowerment through Participation” project, we help to develop solutions for better compatibility of home care and career. The goal is, especially for small and medium businesses, to reduce the strain on affected employees and improve the attractiveness of such companies as employers. The project was launched first in Helmstedt county and the city of Wolfsburg. It is supported by the European Social Fund.
