What does it mean to have smart homes that are age-friendly? What standards and approaches around ICT for AHA in the context of smart homes exist? How can standards help and what standards do we need to make smart homes more age-friendly?

These are some of the questions that will be considered within the PROGRESSIVE project in the upcoming months in work dealing with the development of policy document and technical factsheets relating to age-friendly smart homes.

We would very much like to hear from you:

  • if you have experience with age-friendly smart homes,
  • if you are offering services or technologies related to smart homes,
  • if you have been involved in the development of smart homes (especially smart homes with solutions for independent/assisted living).
  • or if you have specific questions around the use or development of smart home solutions

Contact us and we will keep you informed about and engaged in our upcoming work!

The PROGRESSIVE participatory approach relies on a network of stakeholders that are regularly consulted as the project moves forward!
