The AAL Association organizes an INFO DAY and a CONSORTIUM BUILDING seminar in two consecutive days on 16 and 17 April 2014 to inform the European community about the next call topic of the AAL Joint Programme: “Care for the future” The topic of this call will be explained as well as the procedures for applying and for searching a partner.
The Info Day
There is an increasing drive from the Governments to adopt ICT for care of older adults, and huge potential for technology to tap into market opportunities and unmet needs. Therefore, Call 2014 of the AAL JP aims at funding the development of ICT-based solutions which enable and support sustainable care systems for older adults, i.e. systems that are economically and socially viable for the future and which do not result in unfair or disproportionate impacts on any significant contributory element of the healthcare system.
The call targets new concepts necessary to ensure patient centred care with focus on older adults considering the growing importance of informal caregivers to deliver future care services and maximising the opportunity for technologies to support care and new providers to enter the market. How can social care frameworks using existing neighbourhood resources increase society’s ability to monitor wellbeing at scale, whilst supporting informal carers and reinforcing community links? New solutions need to also support prevention, early discharges, reduce readmissions and sustain health outcomes to regain independent lifestyles.
The maximum length of your presentation will be of 4 slides (Title and contact, who we are, project idea, looking for) and no exception will be made. Therefore, presentations longer than the indicated format will not be accepted.
