"Ageing well": European Commission unleashes €600m for development of new digital solutions for Europe's elderly people.

Published

Project Aim

Between now and 2013, the Commission, the EU Member States and the private sector will together invest more than €1 billion in research and innovation for ageing well, including €600 million from the new Joint Research Programme and €400 million from the EU's seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.

The main aims are to generate significant cost-savings in health and social care and create a strong industrial hub for ICT and ageing in Europe and make a better quality of life for elderly people (through e.g. smart home technologies for controlling heating, lighting, and even food stocks remotely, electronic alarm systems or tele-health facilities).
