What is the Ambient Assisted Living?
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is ICT-enabled independent living by using products and services for better lives and functional capability of older adults to promote a healthier lifestyle and to support carers, families and care organizations. It is broadly speaking about older adults and people who take care of them, who will have an existing requirement for ICT solutions dependent on their lifestyle, physical or mental health, now or in the future.

The AAL Forum is the annual platform for our increasing European AAL community to meet and discuss several topics, relevant for improving the AAL Programme as well as the adoption of AAL solutions in the market. The event aims to offer participants high interactivity and hands on experience on the ultimate technology that the AAL world can offer today. It combines interactive sessions and workshops with an interesting exhibition area. Initiatives from the Flanders care sectors and care living labs will be showcased while end users will be heavily involved.

The Forum's mains objectives are to exhibit and demonstrate existing or developing ICT solutions (products and services), promote networking within the community, foster the interest of other sectors in the field of AAL, provoke debate and discussion on various topics and highlight new or emerging developments in the area to inform the AAL community.
