Diversity and empowerment:  understanding the realities of older people
10:00 to 13:00 (CET), 26th October 2021

This workshop will be a dialogue between older people, people with disabilities, academics, researchers and the general public. By exposing the lived realities of older people and people with disabilities, the workshop will seek to challenge prejudices around ageing. It will exhort participants to get closer to people’s realities and experiences. The workshop will show the ways in which SHAPES is working hard to respond to users’ needs, as illustrated by the #SHAPESstories.

Technological platforms and healthy ageing: challenges and opportunities

The SHAPES Innovation Action intends to build and deploy a large-scale, EU-standardised open platform. The integration of a broad range of technological, organisational, clinical, educational, and societal solutions seeks to facilitate active and healthy ageing (AHA) and the maintenance of a high-quality standard of life. Mediated by technology, in-home, and local community environments interact with health and care (H&C) networks contributing to the reduction of H&C costs, hospitalisations, and institutional care. However, the complexity of health and care systems poses great challenges.
