In order to support a national implementation of the Active and Assisted Living (AAL) Programme, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) has the mission-orientated national R&D Programme benefit in the field of "Technology (in particular ICT) and Older Persons".


The motivation of this funding activity is in the demographic change and ageing in Europe, which implies not only challenges but also opportunities for the citizens, the social and healthcare systems as well as industry and the European market. The programme benefit (see also AAL) aims

  • to extend the time people can live in their preferred environment by increasing their autonomy, self-confidence and mobility,
  • to support maintaining health and functional capability of the elderly individuals,
  • to promote a better and healthier lifestyle for individuals at risk
  • to enhance the security, to prevent social isolation and to support maintaining the multifunctional network around the individual
  • to support carers, families and care organisations
  • to increase the efficiency and productivity of used resources in the ageing societies
