SUPPORTING OCCUPATION IN LIFE FOR OLDER ADULTS
ICT-based Solutions for Supporting Occupation in Life of Older Adults
Call 6 aims at the development of ICT-based solutions which enable older adults to continue managing their occupation – at work in an office, a factory or any working environment; in a first or subsequent career, in paid or voluntary occupation including local social activities – while preserving health and motivation to remain active.
Occupation in the context of this Call 6 is defined as paid and unpaid activity that results in benefit for the community, society and economy. The AAL Joint Programme is looking for ICT solutions to promote, enhance and sustain:
- paid activity (including but not exclusive to professional, entrepreneurial/small business and self-employment)
- unpaid activity (e.g. volunteering, knowledge sharing, counselling).
The AAL Joint Programme aims at innovative and ICT-based solutions delivered through applied research and development activities, which are financially sustainable and underpinned by a credible business case at proposal submission stage. Projects are expected to target market needs and demands. Find more information on the topical areas which are in the scope of the present Call 6 in the chapter entitled “Description”.
