“Living well with dementia – The contribution of ICT to integrated solutions for enabling the wellbeing of people living with dementia and their communities”
Enterprise Europe Network Flanders invites you to participate in the matchmaking event during the AAL Call Infoday 2016 in Brussels, organized by AAL Central Management Unit in cooperation with Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
This matchmaking event will enable bringing together companies, deployers, investors, corporations, researchers, … to seize the opportunities and build (technological and/or commercial) collaboration across the borders. By participating in this b2b networking you will get access to the latest technologies and new business channels only by creating an online profile to select your face-2-face meetings. It gives you the opportunity to have bilateral meetings with the other participants: a private meeting where you can discuss your project idea, request, offer and know how with a potential partner.
Information day AAL Call 2016 - Living well with dementia
The contribution of ICT to integrated solutions for enabling the wellbeing of people living with dementia and their communities
People with dementia are confronted with a syndrome that increasingly affects their memory, thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday activities. The average duration of dementia is between 2 and 10 years and ranges from mild cognitive impairments to severe dementia. Dementia is overwhelming not only for the people who have it, but also for their caregivers and families and impacts them physically, psychologically and economically. Dementia is strongly linked with age. Existing treatments for neurodegenerative diseases are very limited and only treat the symptoms, rather than addressing the cause. In addition, no new drug treatment for Alzheimer’s disease has been approved in the past five years. This means that care and support to increasing numbers of people who have MCI/dementia, their carers and communities will be needed in the coming years. ICT technologies offer enormous potential to support not only people with dementia to live well, but also their families, informal carers and professional carers.
The aim of this call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects with a clear route to market and added-value for the different types of end-users. A key priority underlying this challenge will be to bring together technologies and services to create ICT based solutions with a clear route to market addressing the aspirations and challenges that will enable the wellbeing of people with dementia and their communities (family, caregivers, neighbourhood, service providers, care system, etc.).
This event is organised by the AAL Central Management Unit, where the challenge as well as the procedures for applying and for searching a partner will be explained.
If you are interested in pitching your project proposal at the Info day, be aware that the deadline for submitting a presentation is 1 March 2016 at 5PM. Please download the template here and send it in pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The maximum length of your presentation will be of 4 slides (Title and contact, who we are, project idea, looking for) and no exception will be made. Therefore, presentations longer than the indicated format will not be accepted. Please note that presentations must be on project ideas and not on single companies/organisations.
This year, the Consortium Building Seminar will take place on the day after the Info Day, that is on 9 March. This workshop aims to support potential proposers in setting up successful consortia so as to maximize the chances of commercial success of their project. The agenda will be shortly available.
Attendees can come to one or the two events, and registration is mandatory (available soon). Both events are free of charge.
Participants will benefit from the interesting lectures, workshops, posters and exhibition during the forum and the additional opportunity to meet potential partners for their innovative technology and business.
It’s an ideal way to find potential business and cooperation partners, in pre-arranged 30 minutes meetings in one location. You simply need to register, present yourself, your company, your technology online and select partners of interest to you before the event.
