Innovations such as emergency call systems, internet or mobile phones can make life easier for the elderly. But what if the handling is simply too complicated to understand for a certain age group? And what about matters of privacy?
Vienna in the year 2050
“Autonomous Living in Vienna” will try to develop a frame-work for Ambient Assisted Living in the year 2050. Citizens of all age groups will voice their wishes and concerns in workshops. Sience and technology experts will turn the outcome into recommendations for research and politics. The final draft will be brought to an online-vote, to find out which issues concern the broad public.
Working with CIVISTI
The CIVISTI method, co-developed by the ITA, will help stakeholders such as elderly citizens, health care professionals, companies and familiy members to draw a picture for the future. The focus lies on multidisciplinarity and citizens’ response. The project is coordinated by Innovendo, a policy advisor for Ambient Assisted Living.
