The AAL Programme has been supporting organisations in the development of products and services designed to improve quality of life for older adults for over a decade. Since the first call for AAL projects in 2008 more than 240 collaborative projects have been funded.
The AAL Association has commissioned Technopolis, an independent STI policy research organisation, to assess the impact of the programme since its inception.
We invite you to respond to a survey questionnaire because you contributed to an AAL project. Please know that the survey questionnaire is targeting participants that were part on an AAL project that was completed by 2018, including projects from call 2008-2016. The aim of this survey is to capture the full impact of the AAL Programme.
A first exercise was conducted in 2019 and a summary of the highlights is presented on the AAL website. This first survey only invited project participants that were part of an AAL project that was completed by 2016. This survey produced some promising findings (eg 3 in 10 projects resulted in a solution/component being launched on the market!) In order to make the 2019 impact assessment results more robust we would like to ensure that also your project is represented, helping us reflect further on the challenges and opportunities in this growing market.
By completing the survey questionnaire, you have the chance to win a ticket to the 2020 AAL Forum which will be held in Trieste, Italy, 3-5 November 2020. We will provide a free entry ticket to up to 5 representatives from different projects that respond to the questionnaire.
Please respond to the survey questionnaire by 3 April. This should only take 5-10 minutes to complete!
