Stakeholder brainstorming workshop

19 October 2017 from 09:30 to 16:00
CEN-CENELEC Management Center, Brussels, Belgium

Join us for aEuropean stakeholder brainstorming workshop dedicated to ICT standardisation for active and healthy ageing! The event will gather stakeholders from all over Europe to exchange views onhow standards in the area of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can better meet the needs of Europe's ageing population.

Standards play a crucial part in all our lives. They ensure that many of our products and services operate safely and properly. But are standards suitable to all citizens? More specifically: do standards - especially the ones in the area of ICT - contribute to ‘active and healthy’ ageing whereby the energy, knowledge and expertise of older people can be harnessed?

The question arises because more people are living longer lives. Thus, the PROGRESSIVE project partners are inviting you to participate in a brainstorming workshop with high-level attendees to debate on ways to ensure European ICT standards address the demographic challenge.


    It will bean opportunity for you to share your views on:

    • How the needs of an ageing population can be better addressed
    • How standards support ICT-based products & services related to AHA
    • How older people's participation can be assured in the development of the different standards.
    Who is invited to join this workshop?
    • Older people's representatives
    • Policy makers and agencies in charge of AHA-related policies
    • National, European and international standardisation organisations
      and their technical bodies relevant to AHA
    • Providers of ICT-based products and services related to AHA
      (in various fields: assistive technologies, care, housing, transport, …)
    • Research & innovation projects relevant to ICT for AHA standardisation.

    Participation is free of charge.
