The objective of this workshop is to hear from various stakeholders about their perspectives, their offerings and/or their needs, and to reflect on benefits, challenges and important features of platforms and specific solutions.
The purpose of the workshop is to strengthen the participants’ knowledge by focusing on the end-user needs rather than just technology and to obtain knowledge sharing and exchange of experience. You will focus on the practical work with individual needs and tools; need statement, target groups, value proportions and goal setting.
This workshop will focus on an overview of co-design and co-creation methods and mechanisms to enable interaction with different target groups in order to maximise the possibilities of new products and services to contribute towards sustaining health and care systems.
A service model defines how end-users will first get into contact with the technology, what the role is of lead users and other stakeholders, and how a technology is integrated in daily practice, health programs, and care protocols. This workshop aims to familiarize you with the concept and tools of service modelling, showcase some examples from the field of AAL.
Digital solutions are helping to smooth this transition (examples include tele-centre support and virtual coaches). Using two hospitalisation@home use cases, this workshop will enable attendees to understand how the SCIROCCO Exchange tool can help them with understanding and applying change management approaches.
The objective of this workshop is to learn from government approaches on how to foster the uptake and use of technology for healthy ageing. You will gain insight on what kind of policy instruments can be used to stimulate and foster implementation of innovations and how lessons learned in different countries can help to create the right conditions for the transformation.
While there is a large body of research on virtual avatars, embodiment and social robots, most works concentrate on evaluating existing solutions with user-based studies. This workshop aims at formative creation of new knowledge in this topic: discussing on how to integrate the needs and desires of older people in the design process.
The aim of the proposed session is to explore the smartwork solutions that are currently developed by the numerous projects, and raise awareness about the whole array of services they offer. Moreover, we will discuss what are the expectations of the health, social and other professionals, authorities and companies when it comes to these digital solutions.
This workshop aims to investigate first how deep are the perception and awareness on privacy-related issues associated to sensing technologies used in remote healthcare or assisted living, and whether and how the perception of privacy-aware life-logging services and the related acceptability have changed and evolved in the “post pandemic” life.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss how trends and future technologies will inspire tomorrow’s products and services for an active and healthy ageing. The workshop originates from a document recently published by the AAL Programme containing some inspiring information on technology trends and opportunities in the field of Active and Assisted Living.
In this workshop you will learn more about the issue of undernutrition in Europe, the future vision of how primary food care could look, as well as experience a live cooking session!
The direct economic impact of adult and elderly populations health care for Covid-19 spread created the fear of unsustainable health care burden due to measures aimed to mitigate morbidity and mortality of the virus. The aim of this workshop is to promote interdisciplinary perspectives involving experts of different disciplines.
The workshop discussions will focus on the concept of Active and Healthy ageing as an opportunity both for the whole society and for the national-regional economy.
Telling as well as listening to personal stories creates a dialogue, creates social interaction, and can support social cohesion in terms of solidarity between human beings across generations. In this interactive session, we will use the essential components of the HiStory solution, where personal memories about a certain theme are shared and voice recorded via this recording tool.
PLENARY Based on regional and national experiences, examples will be provided on how to collaborate between different organisations and systems in healthcare for greater system resilience & agility as well as focus on citizen-centered/driven services.
Do we need to reinvent care and make health and care systems in Europe closer to the needs of older people and their families? The COVID experience also highlighted how rapidly discrimination against the older people may arise in society when resources are perceived as scarce. This session aims to give participants some insights into the issues regarding the impact of COVID 19 on isolation and loneliness of older people.
This workshop will cover such questions as presenting what is digital accessibility and who is covered by it? Which are the technical possibilities? What do the regulations say and how improved digital accessibility can look in reality?
This workshop will directly address local and regional ecosystem examples of pilots implemented in the projects and focus on their work aimed at building comprehensive and user-friendly ecosystems for active and healthy ageing, using co-creation with stakeholders ranging from older persons, health care professionals, researchers and industry, to identify needs and co-design services to improve older persons lives.
In this workshop professors in social sciences and humanities (SSH) and their students will critically discuss and compare tools, strategies and experiences with experts and stakeholders on the different ways of transferring knowledge among generations. Together with Art, Literature and Sociology experts you will explore the multi-faceted aspect of “ageing”.
This workshop is dedicated to fostering a wide range of initiatives aimed at increasing levels of investment by public authorities and private investors in digital innovation for AHA, particularly investments in cost-effective digitally enabled person-centred care solutions.
This workshop will promote a new culture of “feeling at home” thanks to an ongoing dialogue between public authorities and the business community in order to make the Constitutional right to live at home more sustainable and accessible.
