EU-Funded Deployment Projects in the area of ICT For Ageing Well
In response to the challenges and opportunities presented by an ageing global population, nine pilot projects were launched by the European Commission within the Action Plan for Ageing Well in the Information Society. The aim of these pilots was to implement various ICT solutions at pilot sites across Europe to further promote their role in encouraging active and healthy ageing. This cluster of pilots came to a successful conclusion at the end of 2012. These pilots not only explore options for in the home, but also remote assistance, as well as enabling care givers remote access to patient information. These pilot projects not only provide concrete examples of successful, high level, international collaboration, but also a considerable number of case studies demonstrating the benefits of introducing technology into the lives of older people for improved security and social interaction.
