What is AAL?
Ambient assisted living (AAL) is the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in a person’s daily living and working environment to enable her/him stay active longer, remain socially connected and live independently into old age.
Why do we focus on AAL?
AAL is a rapidly growing economic sector creating new jobs. The complexity of all the useful innovations in the field of AAL needs professionals who know how to incorporate, install, service, and use those devices. For this reason, new skills profiles have to be set-up for professionals from various backgrounds.
