AALIANCE2 Roadmap and SRA: Call for AAL Experts

AALIANCE2 Project is a Coordination Action funded in the FP7-ICT-2011.7, which focuses on the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions based on advanced ICT technologies for healthy and active ageing and wellbeing of elderly people in Europe. One of its main objectives is to build consensus upon research priorities in the AAL roadmap and Strategic Research Agenda for the upcoming decades.

Objectives

This call for experts aims to consolidate the structure and contents of the first version of the AALIANCE2 Roadmap and Strategic Research Agenda produced during the first period of the Project and to probe and build on them new improved and enriched AALIANCE2 contents.

Participants

Suitable persons are experts in the AAL domain, such as AAL technology developers and researchers, ICT service providers and technology suppliers, standardization organizations, AAL service designers, end-user organizations, healthcare providers, caregivers, industry, etc. Experts’ experience must include at least substantial analysis and insights of end-user needs and motives, assessment and experimentation with (innovative) technologies in realistic cases, or exploration and design of innovative Product Service Systems for AAL.

Methods

In order to contribute, you have to register to the AALIANCE2 website (www.aaliance2.eu). After the registration you will have access to the private area where the most updated versions of AAL Roadmap and SRA material produced by the AALIANCE2 Consortium are saved. There you can also find a form to contribute.
You can choose the most appropriate conceptual area of the Roadmap and SRA where to contribute and compile the form or the questionnaire
The two main area are:

  1. AAL stakeholders' needs and services in the three AAL pillars, i.e. Prevention, Compensation and Support, Independent Living (recommended, but not required, for End-user organizations, helathcare service providers, socio-medical operators, etc.)
  2. AAL Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), i.e. sensing, reasoning, acting, interacting, communicating (recommended, but not required, for AAL technology developers and researchers, ICT service providers and technology suppliers, etc.)

We invite you as an expert!
Your engagement should help to better understand how the AALIANCE2 Roadmap and SRA could be useful for the wide range of stakeholders involved. We kindly ask you to extend this invitation also to colleagues and partners of relevant (national or European) projects you are involved in.
