Welcome to TAPPI Cast, our weekly update on the 'Technology for our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation' (TAPPI) project which aims to improve the way technology is used in housing and care for older people. Includes updates from our 6 Testbeds, Resources and Events of interest.

This week, TAPPI partners we're delighted to meet with the project's Coproduction partner, Coproduction Works, and TAPPI Coproduction Champions to review the 10 TAPPI Principles defined during phase 1 of the programme and decide which Principles should form the basis of the TAPPI Framework. More on this to follow!

Updates from our Testbeds:

Residents enjoyed a cream tea Thank You event last week and enjoyed discussing their journey over the last 12 months; with excitement that they are more independent, informed and get out and mix with fellow residents due to devices in the communal areas.
