Bridiging Research in Ageing and ICT Development: the BRAID roadmap has been issued
The BRAID project has come to the end, but it has delivered the result of its extensive consultation with stakeholders in a comprehensive Research and Technological Development (RTD) Roadmap for Ageing: this Executive Summary explains in 32 pages over two years work and more than 1500 pages produced by the BRAID project team. Launched at the BRAID Final Conference in Prague on 28th May 2012, the Roadmap identifies strategic actions related to the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) development and policy aimed at supporting people to age well and with dignity. Its vision is focused on four life settings that were developed in consultation with key stakeholders, namely independent living, health and care in life, occupation in life, and recreation in life. Five stakeholders engagement workshops involving older people, policy makers and international experts were held, enriching the already eclectic mix of people from different disciplines, sectors and countries that built the project consortium. AGE took part to these workshops as member of the Expert Group, supporting the “bridging” exercise with related current European initiatives such as the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP AHA), the Digital Agenda and the FUTURAGE roadmap.
