AAL Interoperability Days

Managing AAL Complexity through Support for Interoperability


Location: At the premises of the European commission in
Avenue de Beaulieu 25, Brussels, Belgium
Start: February 19, 2014, at 11:30
End: February 20, 2014, at 15:30

In 2011, 44 AAL (Ambient Assisted Living) projects with the involvement of ca. 200 organizations signed the Lecce Declaration, which caused the strategic and the operational plans of the EIP-AHA (European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Living) to include the C2 action group on interoperable independent living solutions. After more than two and a half years, this event aims at bringing the demand and supply side together in order to evaluate the achievements so far and collect recommendations for the way forward. The workshop will include three plenary sessions and two parallel tracks, one specific to the demand side and the other to the supply side:

  • The demand side will meet in two sessions that are the continuation of the "mutual learning" workshops of the ENGAGED project, this time to look at the topic of interoperability. Subsequently, they will have a look at the ReAAL experience in a third session, as this project has specifically been designed for the EIP-AHA to assess the value of interoperable independent living solutions.
  • The supply side will go through the results of an AAL JP's support action that investigates the role of integration profiles in achieving interoperability (in parallel to the "mutual learning" sessions of  the demand side). Finally in parallel to the demand side's session on ReAAL, the suppliers will have a look at the results of the EC investments on the universAAL open platform for AAL.

In particular, the final plenary session will try to find out how the participants evaluate the covered part of the journey and which recommendations they make for the next steps towards managing AAL complexity.
