Are you developing technological solutions that help manage wellbeing and connect people to their care professionals? If your solution assists in managing physical and mental health, connects people to care professionals or family and friends, and keeps people active by providing new skills or the opportunity to share skills with others, then come join our webinar to hear about the funding opportunities of the AAL – Ageing Well in the Digital World programme.

Norway Health Tech together with Norwegian Smart Care Cluster are organising an info session on the AAL programme Call 2021 where we have invited AAL programme representatives and The Research Council of Norway representatives to present the call, funding and evaluation rules. We have also invited a successful AAL project coordinator to tell us their story together with one of the testing sites. (see the agenda below)

AAL is a European programme funding innovation that keeps people connected, healthy, active and happy into their old age. The AAL Call 2021 “ADVANCING INCLUSIVE HEALTH & CARE SOLUTIONS FOR AGEING WELL IN THE NEW DECADE” aims to support innovative, transnational, and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects.

The AAL programme supports the development of products and services that make a real difference to people’s lives – for those facing some of the challenges of ageing and for those who care for older people when and if they need help. More information about the AAL programme: http://www.aal-europe.eu/

If you are a member of Norway Health Tech, Norwegian Smart Care Cluster or a stakeholder working toward a better life for people in their old age this webinar and call for projects could be for you.

The event will be held exclusively online due to Covid19 restrictions  – a link to join in will be sent to all registered participants closer to the date. This webinar will be conducted in English
