Active and Assisted Living Programme: Advancing inclusive health & care solutions for ageing well in the new decade


Main purpose: The aim of the AAL Programme is to improve the autonomy, participation in social life, skills, and employability of older adults by providing innovative Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)/digital- based solutions. These solutions, whether they are products, systems or services, aim to enhance the older adults’ quality of life, to improve the long-term sustainability of health and care systems, and to strengthen the industrial base in Europe and internationally.

The call would like to stress three elements, namely an inclusive health & care approach (health prevention, preservation of physical & mental health, social participation), the stimulation and upscaling of innovation in active & healthy ageing through health & care eco-systems and the accessibility of digital solutions to end users, e.g through education for greater e-literacy.

The smart solutions for healthy ageing funded under the AAL Programme should be designed to address the respective wishes/aspirations and needs identified by end-users as well as being both transnational and collaborative with a cost-sharing approach between private and public funding.
