Ageing and Technology, MYBL-COST-AAL joint workshop (9-10 February)

Three relevant European initiatives have agreed to collaborate and to jointly address some of the key issues in their fields regarding information and communication technologies, which are of interest to the research and innovation community.
 
This workshop jointly organised by the Joint Programming Initiative on Demographic Change “More Years, Better Lives” (JPI MYBL), COST and the Active and Assisted Living (AAL) Programme aimed to:


                                                    
  • Boost the collaboration between the research community and developers of technology to provide better ICT-enriched living environments for older people and leading to technologies which are actually used by the target group.
  • Identify gaps in current research and development work, and areas where issues were already being addressed.
  • Bring researchers and others involved in the AAL and MYBL worlds/communities together with people involved in relevant COST networks to discuss possible collaboration and provide a platform where new forms of collaboration can start and new networks can form.
  • Inform about the objectives and funding opportunities in JPI MYBL and AAL Programme, as well as the support which the COST programme can provide to fund large research networking activities on this topic.
