Theme 3 - INCREASING THE ADOPTION OF AAL SOLUTIONS


This theme aims to understand ways to reach the adoption of AAL solutions, focused on the identification of the gap between the user needs and the AAL solutions. There is an added value chain that AAL projects need to follow to meet customers needs and expectations. The proposed ideias for workshops are expected to explore every step of this journey, looking for common reasons of rejection and adoption.

-What is holding back the stakeholders from adopting technology?
-Biodesign - How to identify user needs (primary, secondary and tertiary end-users);
-Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs - which needs are AAL solutions addressing;
-What is the perceived value and price elasticity of AAL Solutions;
         - Basic requirements of primary, secondary and tertiary end-users;
         - Digital literacy (acceptance and understanding of the added value of technology by decision makers, professionals and users e.g. good practices of how a social care givers moved from traditional to digital training of their employees);
         - Impact of ethical aspects;
         - Interoperability;
         - Others.
