Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments - towards the White Paper

Room 0.94-0.95, 05/12/2018 (11:30-12:15)

The workshop intends to discuss the Joint Statement released on November regarding Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE), towards the creation of a White Paper on SHAFE.

The specific aim of SHAFE is to enhance the two main aspects of Age-Friendly Environments – Places and People – in the creation of eHealth and mHealth solutions - especially focused on quality and costs.

These smart environments need to align technological development with the building industry in terms of policy and funding, in order to make smart homes available, affordable and large-scaled in Europe. This broad adoption may be the keystone to a more efficient health care system that adds better quality for less investment, in line with the Digital Single Market strategy.

During 2018, Cáritas Coimbra and AFEdemy are the Coordinators of SHAFE (approved by the European Commission) that involves already 10 major European networks and over 100 partner organisations, bringing inputs, comments and endorsement of expectedly hundreds of stakeholders all around Europe.

A Framing Paper on the subject is being written during this year and a final Joint Statement will be presented on the HPP annual meeting in 12th November, leading to a public call to action.

Cáritas Coimbra and AFEdemy intend to take the Joint Statement a step further into a White Paper during 2019 and will launch the works officially at ICT 2018.

Dear Mrs. Dantas,

unfortunately I won't be able to attend the workshop because of scheduling conflicts.

Will there be a video recording or kind of a webinar of your session available?

Kind regards,
