Longer Independent Living
EIT Digital Wellbeing Summer School
|||July 1 - July 14||Apply now|
Longer life expectancy creates new challenges for societies worldwide. Public budgets in the healthcare systems are under unprecedented pressure to maintain quality of care to an aging society.
Policy makers need to find ways of providing a wide range of elderly assistance services dealing with both psychological and neurological diseases to conditions of frailty and loneliness. ICT-based solutions could reduce expensive healthcare services by detecting early stage (mental and physical) problems thus avoiding larger health problems by suitable lifestyle interventions.
In this Summer School the Longer Independent Living theme will be introduced through interactive lectures and workshops on topics in the health value chain. There are many different stakeholders involved to deliver services that support independent living, at home and in the wider urban areas.
Research institutes such as Fraunhofer Portugal and Champalimaud Foundation will share business cases with state of the art solutions for Digital Assisted Living.
