Europe, like many other parts of the world, is in the middle of a demographic transition which is fundamentally transforming the ways in which our societies are structured and function. New forms of social innovation can help solve or alleviate many of the problems resulting from this: one of them is the Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
The Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL JP) is a European funding activity with the aim of enhancing the quality of life of older people and strengthening the industrial base in Europe through the use of ICT.
The session aims at debating how ICT can foster benefits for individuals, society and economy in Europe and it will shed light on:
• New models of service delivery and care that contribute to greater self-reliance for older adults;
• Adapted living spaces that can improve the quality of their everyday lives;
• New ways for older people to remain active, including contributing as volunteers or providing mutual support.
This networking session will involve the Director of the AAL Association, Karina Marcus; the member of the EB of the AAL Association, Daniel Eglof; an I Walk Active Project representative; an Is Active project representative.
Organised by: Nicola FILIZOLA (Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme, Belgium)
