Provisional draft ICT for Independent Living and Inclusion European Commission, DG Information Society and Media E-Inclusion Unit (H3) Challenge 7
Provisional draft Challenge 7: ICT for Independent Living and Inclusion Integration & Empowerment of Individuals Participation for All Objective Outcome New Markets – global leadership Better Accessibility - better for all Opportunities Challenges 30% non-users Aging Population Complex, inaccessible ICT
Provisional draft Demographic Ageing i2010 flagship on ICT and Ageing E-Inclusion Policy Riga Ministerial Declaration, 2006 eAccessibility Communication ICT has major catalytic role on Inclusion Major global market opportunity 20B€+/year Europe well placed to respond Challenge 7: ICT for Independent Living and Inclusion Independent Living Active Ageing Mainstream Accessibility & usability Next Generations of Assistive Technologies Role of ICT for an e-Inclusive society Prolonged independent living Increased active participation Reduction in the 30% of non- users Global Leadership in Ageing market Key Areas Impacts IndustrialRelevance Industrial Relevance Policy Relevance
Provisional draft Objective 22.214.171.124: ICT and Ageing Target Outcomes Expected Impacts Integration of advanced ICT prototype solutions for Independence at home, on the move or at work. Focus on increased system efficiency and user acceptance through highly novel approaches (compl. to AAL169) Global Industrial and academic leadership in ICT and Ageing Providing basis for future solutions with highly increased efficiency and user acceptance Open Systems Reference Architectures, standards and Platforms for Independent Living and Active ageing Enabling cost-effective, multi- vendor solutions Enabling seamless and reliable integration of devices and services RTD roadmaps, socio-economic research, standards setting, international cooperation US, Japan A long term RTD agenda for ICT and Ageing, positioning Europe efforts in the global market, including standards, soc-econ.
Provisional draft Advanced Prototype Systems for Independent Living and Active Ageing Target Users: People with Age-related impairments –at Home, on the Move, at Work Objectives: Achieve breakthroughs in new systems that could significantly –Prolong personal autonomy in the home and on the move Integrated care, Rehabilitation in the Home, Support by relatives –Prolong active participation in Society Key research issues: Increase system efficiency and user acceptance by –Radically new paradigms, Increasing system intelligence –Making technology invisible & adaptive to user needs and emotional states –Sharing contextual information between a number of artefacts and services –Providing appropriate ethical and privacy safeguards Target outcomes: –Scientific break-throughs enabling new solutions for independent living and active ageing through a set of working prototypes –Step change Increase for academic and industrial knowledge base in the field Note that this should complement projects already launched under IST call 6
Provisional draft Open Systems Reference Architectures, Standards and Platforms Target Users: People with Age-related impairments –at Home, on the Move, at Work Objectives: Develop an open standards-based approach for integrating independent living and active ageing solutions –Building on and extending existing standards and middleware –New architectures, standards and guidelines where needed Key research issues: –Seamless integration of required components and services –Self-configuration and minimal maintenance solutions –Ontologies for automated sensor data collection –Reliable and trusted systems Target outcomes: –Cost-effective and trusted multi-vendor solutions through a set of open standards and application platforms –Seamless and reliable system integration of devices and services into the home, on the move or at work Note that this should complement projects already launched under IST call 6
Provisional draft Objective 126.96.36.199: Accessible and Inclusive ICT Deeply embedding accessibility in mainstream ICT. Methods and tools for computer simulation of user interaction and validation frameworks. Assistive solutions based on non invasive Brain computer interaction. Demonstration of accessible solutions in real life using context. Enable new market opportunities. Facilitate seamless interaction between accessible mainstream ICT and assistive solutions. Facilitate development and production of accessible ICT. Better understanding of ethical issues, market requirements barriers and cost benefit aspects. Assistive technology constituencies coordination and international cooperation ICT based Communication and shared environments for social inclusion of marginalized young people RTD capacity on ICT solutions for social inclusion. Target Outcomes Expected Impacts
