The AAL Forum

Bridging the gaps between technology solutions and active ageing. What can YOU do?

The AAL Programme promotes innovative technological product ideas and supports them until they launch on the market. These innovations are presented at the annual AAL Forum, among the largest European events of its kind. The forum provides an excellent opportunity to network within the AAL community and to discuss issues around AAL within workshops, keynote presentations and a large exhibition area. 

The AAL Forum aims at hosting over 700 international congress participants who will seek information from 50 exhibitors, 30 workshops and various keynote speakers about new AAL products and services. The event offers an excellent opportunity to network and gives participants a great platform to exchange experiences and ideas. Interested investors can use the opportunity to find products and services with market potential.

The Forum is the ideal place to visit for the professionals involved in the technology sector with an interest in ageing; for social care and care providers; for investors looking for new solutions and innovations; for all the individuals and organisations implicated in the AAL funded projects; for EU, national and regional decision makers in the field of health, social issue, technology and innovations.

The conference title is Bridging the gaps between technology solutions and active ageing. What can YOU do?

Under this message lies the main topic of the event, which aims at addressing this important question. Technology today is all around us, it creates new economic and social advantages, but it needs to be cautiously adapted to our wishes and needs, while not interfering with the human contact and the necessary social interactions among individuals and groups. This is the perspective in which we are keen to involve you in a lively debate, and that will constitute the red line of the entire Forum: what are the obstacles that still remains in place for ICT technology to be widely used in the field of active ageing? why do social care and care providers do not yet adopt thoroughly technology to sustain their mission while dealing with the older population? and, finally, what are the normative and regulations that can help ageing well, independent and safe at home through the use of ICT? We would like to bring together the entire value chain around these topical topics.

Our goal is not to just to offer definitive answers but to involve you in the discussion and listen to your experiences. We value our community and we believe that only through a proactive involvement of you all, we can achieve better conditions and a better-aged society for the future.
