JPND is collaborating with the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme on Sept. 25th at the 2013 AAL Forum, in Norrköping, Sweden

Assisted living technologies such as ICT/smart technology offer enormous potential in the development of effective measures for prevention, intervention and care for people with neurodegenerative diseases and their carers.

To join forces and align priorities in this area, JPND and the Article-185 initiative – Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL JP), are working together towards developing recommendations for joint actions in the area of assisted living technologies for neurodegenerative diseases.

A JPNDAlignment Action Group, containing members of both initiatives, is working to identify where JPND and AAL JP priorities and activities can be aligned, or new activities identified, and is organising actions to bring together important stakeholders in this area including users, academia, small businesses and the ICT and service industries.

The Action Group is organising a session entitled “AAL & JPND: Partnering to meet needs in the area of neurodegenerative diseases/dementia”, at the 2013 AAL Forum in Norrköping, Sweden, at 11am on Sept. 25th.  The Forum is the annual platform for the ever-increasing European AAL community to meet and discuss topics relevant for improving the AAL JP as well as the adoption of AAL solutions in the market.

In this session information will be presented about JPND, on relevant AAL solutions (showcasing some AAL projects) followed by discussions on their potential impact as well as the way forward.

A JPND poster has been designed to promote the session at the Forum.  The poster can be viewed at the filelink below.
