ICT STANDARDS FOR ACTIVE AND HEALTHY AGEING

THURSDAY 19th OCTOBER 2017 – BRUSSELS

  • Co-Production: Involving and Engaging Older People
  • Age-Friendly ICT Products and Services
  • Smart Homes
  • Telehealth, Telecare and Assistive Technologies
  • Interoperability

Presentations; interactive discussions; brainstorming sessions … the Telehealth Quality Group is playing a key role in the first major event co-ordinated by the European Commission funded PROGRESSIVE project (www.progressivestandards.org). The event (free to those who register) is at the CEN-CENELEC Management Centre in Brussels.

Participants will be there from a wide range of organisations. They will help to steer the PROGRESSIVE project in its mission to make sure that future standards around ICT for Active and Healthy Ageing are ‘fit for purpose’.

The event will mark the launching of the project’s interactive database that will give access to information on standards from robotics to retirement; and from telecare to transport.

And the event will help set the project on course for its final year of work. This includes developing guidelines around ICT for Active and Healthy Ageing for the co-production of standards (making sure that the older person’s voice is heard); age-friendly communities, smart homes and interoperability! More detail is to come – but save the date!
