Call for Porposals AAL 2017 - Packages integrating different solutions based on ICT to support active, healthy and independent living of older adults AAL 2017 Closed!

Objectives

The focus of the 2017 call challenge of the AAL Programme is twofold:

  1. The challenge lies in developing packages integrating different solutions that address the needs and wishes of end-users and add value to their lives
  2. The  challenge  lies in extensive  testing  and  evaluation  of packages  in  order  to  provide meaningful and significant results

Actions

ICT - based solutions in this call challenge are expected to contribute to sustain or improve the quality of life of older adults in different dimensions and throughout the ageing process for:

  • Living a healthy, active and meaningful life.
  • Living independent ly 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.

In case the proposed ICT - based solution includes informal and /or professional carers, it should support them to:

  • reduce stress and care burden;
  • build resilience;
  • improve quality, efficiency and effectiveness of the care they provide .

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

  • A large(r) exploitation of packages integrating different solutions for older adults throughout the ageing process. This includes their supporting environment, if applicable.
  • A growing public and consumer market of interoperable and scalable AAL systems to support active, healthy and independent living forolder adults.
  • More European / international collaboration, including end-users, industry and other stakeholders in the value chain.
  • Savings for the social/care system as older adults are supported in living independently in their homes for longer, thus lowering the need for home care and delaying the move to institutionalized/Community care.
