The AAL (Active & Assisted Living) Forum is the place to be for the European community dealing with technology and active ageing. You can pitch your innovation at the AAL2Business Venture Academy and find out who will win the Smart Ageing Prize 2018.

AAL Forum 2018

The AAL Forum is the yearly event of the AAL Programme, a European supported public-private partnership that funds Active and Assisted Living projects.

At the event we will learn who wins the Smart Ageing Prize 2018. Out of 95 applications a jury will chose the best products and services that use innovative digital technologies to support older people to participate fully in social life.
Currently the 15 most promising European digital solutions have been identified.
