Digital Transformation of Health & Care: How to empower European citizens
Room L8, 04/12/2018 (16:00-16:45)
The AAL (Active and Assisted Living) Programme has become a reference for supporting innovative digital technology-based solutions, in order to enhance older adults’ quality of life in Europe and beyond. At the same time, there are still many market barriers to be overcome, in order to create a viable European market for providing digital technology enhanced solutions for active & healthy ageing. Market fragmentation, lack of standards and inter-operability or adequate data security and privacy are just a few of the challenges to be tackled. In order to support the deployment and scaling-up of digital technology-based applications for active & healthy ageing (such as in health & care, mobility & transport or living & building) cross-sectoral collaboration will be key.
The objective of the session is to bring together experienced professionals operating in relevant eco-systems around Europe (end users, business actors, decision makers, possible buyers/deployers, regions, etc.), in order to discuss the added value of targeted European partnership programmes and the types of support required for building a common European market in this domain.
The session will provide a forum for the participants to bring in their expert views on the needs & aspirations of the different stakeholders within those eco-systems and what it takes to support collaboration amongst those eco-systems around Europe.
