The Active Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL) began as a funding activity in 2008, 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 demographic change in Europe, mainly caused by a process of constant and increasing ageing, implies challenges for the states’ finances, as it weighs on the pensions’ schemes and on the health system, but it also translates into some interesting opportunities for the future.
In fact, ageing should be firstly seen as an opportunity to live longer and better after a working life-time. Secondly, an ageing society presents some interesting advantages at the social level, as older persons are a precious richness in terms of experience, wisdom, and adaptability to societal changes.
The programme is financed by the European Commission and the 22 countries that constitute the Partner States of this Joint Programme:
Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
