The preparation of AAL (Ambient Assisted Living programme) call 5 is in full swing. The AAL partner states gave priority to the topic “Home care”. The AAL JP is eager to receive input from the AAL community regarding this topical area. Also ideas are welcome for developing further this area.
Which gaps do you observe and what are the priorities, what can be the potential impact, what is the state of the art and how can multinational collaboration enable improvement for the European situation? And – last but not least – please provide us with information about activities that are already ongoing in your country in these topical areas! As far possible support your input with evidences and quotes.
To enable the AAL community to contribute to the call 5 definition, an open consultation process is planned. If you want to take part in this, please fill in the templates for "Home care" and send it to email@example.com and Gerda.Geyer@ffg.at. The deadline for returning the template is 6 January 2012.
Goal AAL programme
The objective of the AAL Joint Programme is to enhance the quality of life of older people and strengthen the industrial base in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The motivation of the new funding activity is in the demographic change and ageing in Europe, which implies not only challenges but also opportunities for the citizens, the social and healthcare systems as well as industry and the European market. In the Netherlands, ZonMw will execute the programme on behalf of VWS (Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport).
