News :: ICT for ageing well at ICT 2013 event
(17/10/2013) The ICT 2013 event is foremost the opportunity for you to get updated on the EU’s new programme for research and innovation, Horizon2020.
Of particular interest to the members of the ICT for Ageing/AAL research community will be those two sessions dedicated to the 2014 and 2015 calls for proposals under H2020, for which you can already now ask your questions or provide other comments online:
• Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT and ICT for integrated care
• ICT for integrated, sustainable, citizen-centred care
But ICT 2013 is also a forum for you to exchange ideas, contribute to the development of the research and innovation agenda, network and find new partners (more than 4000 participants registered, see the list), see for example the following networking sessions:
The exhibition promises to be highly interactive and visually exciting – with 186 projects showcasing their latest progress via demonstrations and prototypes, among them:
• fall prevention and detection systems for the elderly (FATE and Idontfall projects)
• frugal innovation that addresses gap between technological advances and the needs of elderly (Usefil project)
• a robotic assistive device that helps elderly with cognitive problems navigate environments such as shopping centers (DALI project)
• the Giraff robot that provides telepresence to the elderly (Giraffplus project)
The booth of the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL JP) will provide information about its funding opportunities and feature concrete results via demonstrations from two of its projects.
