Why?

Standards, mainly those related to ICT as an enabler of Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA), should better meet the needs of Europe's ageing population.

What?

To find out more about how standards affect the products and services that are used

To share views on:

  • How the needs of an ageing population can be better addressed;
  • How standards support ICT-based products & services related to AHA;
  • How older people's participation can be assured in the development of the different standards.

To discuss how to install a sustainable dialogue among relevant stakeholders

For whom?

  • Older people's representatives
  • Policy makers and agencies in charge of AHA-related policies
  • National, European and international standardization organizations
    and their technical bodies relevant to AHA
  • Providers of ICT-based products and services related to AHA
    (in various fields: assistive technologies, care, housing, transport, …)
  • Research & innovation projects relevant to ICT for AHA standardization.
