‘Ambient assisted living forum’, Eindhoven, the Netherlands
2012-09-24 The ‘Ambient assisted living forum’ will take place from 24 to 27 September 2012 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Europe’s population is ageing rapidly. Between 2010 and 2030, the number of people aged from 65 to 80 will rise by nearly 40%, posing challenges to Europe’s society and economy. Information and communication technologies (ICT) can help older people to improve their quality of life, stay healthier, live independently for longer and remain active at work or in their community.
The event is being organised by the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL JP). The AAL JP is jointly funded by the European Union Member States and private organizations. The aim of the joint programme is to not only meet the challenges, but also make use of opportunities, that demographic change means for EU citizens, social and healthcare systems, industry and the European market.
