The Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL JP) is a funding activity running from 2008 to 2013, 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). Therefore, the AAL JP is an activity that operates in the field of services and actions to enable the active ageing among the population.
The programme is financed by the European Commission and the 22 countries that constitute the Partner.
he AAL JP aims to combine social, technological and business aspects to deliver:
- New models of service delivery and care that contribute to greater self-reliance for older adults and greater support for informal carers;
- Adapted living spaces that can improve the quality of their everyday lives;
- New ways for older people to remain active, including contributing as volunteers or providing mutual support;
- New ways of mobilising active and trusted networks, both formal and informal, professional and in kind, to provide all types of support.
