Study on Business and Financing Models related to ICT for Ageing Well
19 September 2013
The Study aims to show that ICT for ageing well is an area worth investing in, and that it is capable of generating a return on investment. The study has undertaken 20 detailed case studies of the most successful European solutions for sustainable business and financing models related to ICT and ageing well which support the active and independent living of older individuals. This has been supplemented by in-depth investigations of the financial strategies of 5 out of the 20 solutions, as well as by comprehensive desk research and consultation and validation activities with the main stakeholders and experts. The work has focused on the five identified geographic regions of Europe (Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Continental, Mediterranean and Eastern European), all with their own characteristic eldercare regimes, but has also examined both the contrasts within each as well as their similarities across Europe.
