Marketing Text Demographic change and the resulting increasing demand for geriatric care on the one hand, and the increasing individualisation of society on the other hand, is a big challenge most European countries are facing. In order to cope with this challenge, concepts of ambient-assisted living (AAL) have been developed in several European countries during the last decade and include concepts, products and services aiming at connecting technology and social needs with the goal to increase quality and length of independent living for elderly. Ever since ambient assisted living is not only an issue of technological research and development, but also a rapidly growing economic sector creating new jobs.
Description Members of the e-Jobs-Observatory, a European stakeholder network, fostering the harmonisation, standardisation and improvement of qualifications for e-Jobs at European level since 2009, initiated the CompAAL project. According to the LLP Programme Priority “New Skills for New Jobs”, the project’s main objective was to identify the emerging jobs in the field of AAL and the relating competence needs. As the AAL sector is driven by innovation in ICT and thus continuously evolving, it has been suffering from a lack of appropriately trained professionals recently. On the basis of the newly identified and described AAL Job Role Profiles, the project developed Training Guidelines for those AAL Jobs which will help VET providers innovating and improving their training offer in order to meet the skills needs on the AAL job market.
