Abstract

The Active and Assisted Living Programme (AAL - http://www.aal-europe.eu) is a pan-European research funding programme aiming at creating better condition of life for the older adults and to strengthen the industrial opportunities in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). The motivation of the programme lies 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. The programme carries out its mandate through the funding of across-national projects (at least three countries involved) that involves small and medium enterprises (SME), research bodies and user’s organizations (representing the older adults). The AAL programme’s objectives and specificities will be presented to the participants.
