Call for Porposals AAL 2016 - Living Well with Dementia - Providing integrated solutions based on ICT to support the wellbeing of people living with dementia and their communities AAL 2016 Closed!


 The focus of the 2016 Call Challenge of the AAL Programme is to fund ICT based innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects with a clear route to market that support people with dementia and their carers to live in dignity and provide satisfaction through all stages of dementia, with support of the community.

A key priority underlying this challenge will be to bring together technologies and services to create ICT based solutions with a clear route to market addressing the aspirations and challenges that will enable the wellbeing of people with dementia and their communities (family, caregivers, neighbourhood, service providers, care system, etc.). The proposals should include a user-centred approach as well as pilots with a considerable number of end-users involved in order to demonstrate the benefits and added-value necessary to make a significant impact on the market.


ICT-based solutions in this call challenge are expected to sustain or improve the capacity of people with dementia for:

  • Living an active and meaningful life (social participation and wellbeing).
  • Living independently and safely for longer at home (decision and control of daily activities) with support from their carers and community when necessary.
  • Living in dignity and satisfaction during all stages of dementia.

The ICT-based solutions should support informal and professional carers to:

  • educe stress and care burden;
  • build resilience;
  • improve quality, efficiency and effectiveness of care.

ICT-based solutions in this call challenge are expected to contribute to:

  • A large(r) use of ICT/technology for people with dementia and their supporting community.
  • A growing public and consumer market of interoperable and scalable AAL services and products to support active, independent and dignified living for people with dementia throughout all stages.
  • More European collaboration, including end-users, industry and other stakeholders in the value chain.
  • Savings for the social/care system as people with dementia live in their homes for longer, thus delaying the move to institutionalized care.
