The AAL Forum is an annual large technological fair, welcoming researchers, industry companies and participants from all over Europe who work around the topic of ageing. It’s an opportunity to discuss a variety of issues related to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for ageing well and to promote products and/or services in the area of Ambient Assisted Living.
This year, COLABORAR also attended the AAL Forum and it was a great opportunity to interact with other research institutions, companies and other institutions related to older adults. In the future, we hope to stay in touch and become partners in new international research projects, exchange experiences and together contribute to shape future technologies!
