Host project ends
Another AAL JP delivery
The AAL JP Host project concluded and presented its encouraging outcomes in a conference in Brussels earlier this week on 12 March.Can social housing today tackle daily life problems of elderly people? How can technology and housing enhance the quality of life?
This conference provided the answers generated through the project to the questions above. As the EU population is ageing and the 65+ age group represents 17% of the total European population- with estimation to grow to 44% by 2050- the European AAL Joint Programme attempts to enhance the quality of life of older people and strengthen the industrial base in Europe through the use of information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
Within this framework the Host project, launched in 2011, has been a setup of experimentations and exchange of practices between 4 European countries- Italy, France, UK and Spain- and enabling the dialogue between different models of social housing organisations, such as the French generalist model of social housing and the Italian and English specialised model and the collaboration between different actors, such has housing providers, universities and institutional actors.
