Call for Porposals AAL 2019 - Smart Solutions for Ageing well AAL 2019 Open!

Objectives

 Following the positive experience from the previous call, AAL Call 2019 presents similar key features in terms of scope and flexibility.

  1. The AAL Call 2019 is open to developing ICT-based solutions targeting any application area(s) within the AAL domain. The solutions need to be embedded into the strategies of the participating end-user organisations, service providers and business partners. The wishes and aspirations of older people in combination with the demands from the other stakeholders involved —e.g., providers and payers— will have a critical role in shaping useful and attractive AAL solutions with a high market potential.
  2. The AAL Call 2019 allows for more flexibility regarding the scope, size and duration of the proposed projects.

Actions

ICT-based solutions in this Call are expected to help sustain or improve various aspects of the quality of life of older adults throughout the ageing process to support them to:

  • Live a healthy, active and meaningful life;
  • Live independently and safely for longer at home (maximising their decision-making and control over their daily activities) with support from their care networks; and
  • Live with dignity and enjoyment.

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

  • Reduce stress and care burden;
  • Build resilience; and
  • Improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of the care they provide.

For organisations and companies that support the quality of life of older adults and their social/support networks, it is important that the proposed ICT-based solutions can be (easily) integrated into their organisational environment
