3 Value Ageing: incorporating EU fundamental values into ICT for ageing The European Union is founded on the values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. Article 2 of the TEU (values of the Union)

4 Motivation 1.We need to understand both: a.the way in which existing values are driving technology innovation, b.how technology in its turn is changing peoples standards. 2.Social scientists and ethicists should learn from technologists, and in their turn technologists should learn from scholars working on human values. 3.Value issues must be addressed at the design stages because it is then, when instruments are thought up, that meanings and values are embedded in technology.

8 Slide 8

9 Slide 9 Bridging Research in Ageing and ICT Development

10 Specific BRAID Objectives Slide 10 Create a dynamic ICT and Ageing roadmap that addresses older people's needs not otherwise well met, that identifies and benefits from best practices in the EU and elsewhere and that analyses current and potential gaps in knowledge and execution; Instantiate a strategic research agenda that tracks and builds upon existing, emerging and disruptive technologies and that responds to the changing socio-economic conditions of stakeholders; Expand the BRAID networks of contacts to build a self-sustaining co-ordination mechanism which is viral and ubiquitous and reaches out across the heterogeneity of stakeholders.

11 Glossary Slide 11

12 Stakeholder Definitions Slide 12

13 Taxonomy Slide 13 Goal: To establish a common language across the area of ICT for Ageing; Identify Trends impacting ICT and Ageing to drive towards roadmap Development of a Taxonomy that examines thematic settings, needs of the elderly, and the technologies that address them Includes a Glossary with definitions of key terms in the ICT/Ageing space, based upon broad range of European research Includes an extensive Bibliography as a resource

Design, develop and integrate open and scalable sensor network environments both home- centered and human-centered, with intelligent monitoring, including new levels of security, safety, and privacy. Extending capabilities. Investigate, develop and integrate intelligent functionalities to compensate diminishing cognitive and physical capabilities and to design and develop intelligent, context-aware and self-adapting tools for personal assistance in planning and performing daily activities and facilitating societal participation. Establishing collaborative environments. Design and develop novel collaborative environments, combining social networking and collaborative networks of care provision stakeholders to facilitate support, companionship, and community participation. Assisting mobility. Integrate and customize methods and tools to assist mobility, including services for localization, trip planning, navigation, orientation in complex environments, driving assistance, and inter-modal transportation, focusing elderly needs. Assess impacts. Promote integrative studies on the sociological, economic, ethical, and quality of life impacts of introducing services and technologies for independent living. Training for new environments. Define new community-based training programs leveraging the potential of new technology-based assistive environments. AI6 Converging Independent and Sustainable Living. Explore the alignment of ICT for Independent Living with smart grid and sustainable development technologies. Vision facets Actions Supportive Environments. Design, develop, and validate preventative and responsive interventions based on situational awareness.

19 The Netwell Centre and CASALA are working together in collaboration with industry, governmental bodies and other academic institutes in developing new ideas that enhance the quality of life and well-being of older people and those who care for them, through more integrated community-oriented services, more sustainable home and neighbourhood design, and more age-friendly technologies.

20 Netwell / CASALA 22+ Team members; A multidisciplinary team involving an array of disciplines including the social and behavioural sciences, health and medical sciences, computer science, engineering, design, marketing and business administration. Our expertise bring together psychologists, social policy researchers, environmental planners and designers, ICT engineers and human factors specialists, and our interests lie across the complete AAL value chain from technology platforms and software services, to business models, processes and workflows and training/service transformation. Funded projects to date: 22m, including seed funding from Enterprise Ireland of 2m for CASALA.

21 Est. 2009 under the Applied Research Enhancement (ARE) programme Provide framework technologies for Irish industry Provide a testing continuum from concept to commerce Building a leadership position for Irish enterprise Mapping sensors to services that are attractive to use Bridging ICT & ageing research to industry opportunities CASALA: linking the Netwell Centre research to industry Working with Irish industry in applied research, innovation through to commercialisation. www.CASALA.ie CASALA A platform for innovation

22 Motivation There is an urgent need to bring quality of life and health to increased years. Technology has the potential to – inform about physical health and wellness – connect people to others and so maintain relationships and friendships – add quality of life and enjoyment to later year

57 CASALA Living Lab STAGE 3: A large-scale test environment established as part of the existing Netwell research base and a wider program entitled Louth Age Friendly County Initiative. This initiative aims to make Louth a hub of excellence for improving the well-being and quality of life of older people. These developments provide a diverse pre-surveyed environment of matched groups for follow up surveys, interviews, and trials that enable insights into adults attitudes and behaviours towards all types of technology and services.
