DALIA at the AAL Forum 2013 in Norrköping, Sweden

The 5th AAL Forum 2013 took place 24th -26th September, in the Louis De Geer Consert & Congress, Norrköping, Sweden. The AAL Forum is the annual platform for the increasing European AAL community to meet and discuss several topics, relevant for improving the AAL JP as well as the adoption of AAL solutions in the market. The 4 main themes for this year’s forum were:

A – Autonomy, choice and control – AAL solutions impact on individuals – autonomy and ability to choose how to spend their days and live their lives.
B – The ageing society – end-user studies and inclusion – Older adults as a collective and integrated part of the society.
C – AAL and the economy – Economic aspects of AAL solutions – economic growth through new ideas, a new branch and new solutions
D – Programmes and policies in Europe – AAL on the European level – implementation and policy strategies.

With more than 60 exhibitors and around 850 participants from all over Europe, the AAL Forum 2013 was an ideal event to promote projects, to network, to find new business opportunities and to participate in the official and major annual meeting of the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme.
