The Active & Assisted Living programme (AAL) intends to launch in February 2017 a new Challenge-led Call for Proposals: "AAL packages/integrated solutions"; packages integrating different solutions based on ICT to support active, healthy and independent living of older adults.

The aim of this call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects. The proposal must demonstrate a clear route to market and added-value for the different types of end-users.

The focus of the 2017 call challenge of the AAL Programme is twofold:

  1. The challenge lies in developing packages integrating different solutions that address the needs and wishes of end-users and add value to their lives. Since peoples' wishes, aspirations, and needs evolve over time, packages should be designed with built-in flexibility and a variety of components in order to meet diverse individual situations and to remain attractive to end-users over time. End-users expect proposed solutions to be affordable, user-friendly, secure, and reliable. Packages should be based on existing and/or open platforms.
  2. The challenge lies in extensive testing and evaluating of packages in order to provide meaningful and significant results.
