Brainstorm & Hackathon

How can ICT and/or Gaming Optimize (Remote) older adults wellbeing?


Ambient assisted technology (AAL) plays a prominent role in increasing the quality of life and autonomy of the older adults. Through new and innovative ICT solutions, the aging population can take more control of their own health and well-being in the long-term.


Do you have any experiences, opinions or ideas on how ICT and/or gaming can optimize older adults care and well-being? Two hands-on sessions will be organized during the AAL Forum 2015 to provide you with a platform to share your ideas with the European AAL community.
