What was the AAL Smart Ageing Prize?
The Smart Ageing Prize was established by the AAL Programme in collaboration with Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre to find technological products and services that help older people actively participate in a social life.
Solutions could take a number of forms, such as (but not limited to):
- Matchmaking applications targeted at older entrepreneurs
- Career portals or platforms helping older adults navigating into enterprise-related opportunities
- Intergenerational online learning solutions enabling learning and skills sharing between older and younger people
Senior enterprise is one powerful means to empower older adults to contribute to society and create meaningful connections, creating resilient and sustainable businesses and social ventures, as well as leveraging the complementary skills and knowledge of younger adults for inter-generational collaboration.
