Study: Best practises in Europe on “ICT enabled independent living for elderly”

30 April 2008

People in the EU are growing older and older. That puts severe pressure on our healthcare systems, and because of that, this study (published 2008) examines if it is true that the use of ICT contributes significantly to keeping care related costs manageable, and also influences the economy through the creation of new market opportunities.

In more detail, following areas are being investigated for each European country:

  • member states’ national approaches and strategies in the area of independent living for elderly;
  • member states’ national research funding programmes in the area of independent living for elderly;
  • ICT-based RTD projects with the aim to support independent living for elderly;
  • products already on the market, success stories / outstanding developments in the area of independent living for elderly;
  • best practices with regard to sustainable take-up and deployment of research results;
  • European key actors in the area of independent living for elderly, private and public, in research and industry ICT enabled independent living for elderly;
  • literature survey of international scientific publications regarding results of ICTbased programmes or projects to support independent living for elderly.
