The Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme is a funding activity with the aim of enhancing the quality of life of older people and strengthening the industrial base in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
The AAL JP aims to combine social, technological and business aspects to deliver:
- New models of service delivery and care that contribute to greater self-reliance for older adults and greater support for informal carers
- Adapted living spaces that can improve the quality of their everyday lives
- New ways for older people to remain active, including contributing as volunteers or providing mutual support
- New ways of mobilizing active and trusted networks, both formal and informal, professional and in kind, to provide all types of support.
