The AAL Forum


A growing community of change makers

Our Goal this year:

Do you work in the active and healthy ageing sector and you want to participate in the European discussion driving the future of digital transformation of health and social inclusion of our ageing population?

Then the AAL Forum is the perfect opportunity for you to be involved in an ecosystem that promotes a new social and economic approach to grow a more inclusive silver economy that benefits individuals, society and industry.  

In this Forum 2018 we aim at bringing together the local actors, such as municipalities, provinces, regions and health and social care providers to meet and engage with the SMEs and the industry that are currently conceiving the digital technology that will be used tomorrow. Together with you, we want to enhance this community of change makers to design more cost-effective systems for building together the services to serve our ageing society.

What will you find:

The Active and Assisted Living (AAL) Programme promotes innovative technological product ideas and services for active and healthy ageing, supporting 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 2018 aims at bringing together some 600 international congress participants, who will be able to find out the latest AAL products and services from exhibitors, 24 workshops and various keynote speakers. 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 meeting place for:

  • Professionals involved in the technology sector with an interest in ageing
  • Social care and care providers
  • Investors looking for new solutions and innovations
  • Individuals and organisations implicated in the AAL funded projects
  • EU, national and regional decision makers in the field of health, social issue, technology and innovations

    Join the debate

    Technology today is all around us. It can benefit us both economically and socially but needs to be cautiously adapted to our wishes and needs, while not interfering with human contact and the social interactions among individuals and groups that we all need.

    It is from this perspective that we are keen to get everyone attending the forum in a lively debate around some crucial questions:

    • How can social and health care providers get closer to technology producer to develop more intelligent systems that benefit all?
    • Where can companies find public sector institutions for co-designing the right solutions for the existing needs?

    Our goal is not just to offer definitive answers, but to bring the entire value chain into the discussion and listen to your experiences. We value our community and believe that it is only through proactive involvement from you all that we will achieve better conditions and a better society for the future.
