European Ambient Assisted Living Innovation Alliance

Objective

Subject of the Coordination Action AALIANCE will be Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions based on advanced ICT technologies for the areas of aging at work, aging at homed and aging in the society. AALIANCE will- provide a framework for stakeholders, led by industry, to define research and development priorities, timeframes and action plans on strategically important issues in the field of Ambient Assisted Living- play a key role in ensuring an adequate focus of research funding for AAL, in fostering effective public-private partnerships and in developing a European research policy, in particular in focusing on FP7 and on current activities launched by EU member states (AAL 169).
Therefore the immediate objectives of AALIANCE consist of:- setting-up a sustainable network - starting with 14 partners to be extended to approx. 35 - involving companies as technology providers and systems integrators, service providers, research organisations and user associations- coordinating the various activities of European industry and research institutions in the field of Ambient Assisted Living,- defining standardisation requirements- providing recommendations for a European RTD policy on Ambient Assisted Living, and- supporting European and national entities to increase political awareness and intensify activities for the enhancement of new AAL technologies.
From these activities it is expected to strengthen the Ambient Assisted Living value chain in Europe, to reinforce the position of providers of Ambient Assisted Living solutions in Europe and address one of the most promising markets of industrialised countries.
