Europe is becoming an Aging Society.
The consequences of the demographic
change represent an exceptional challenge
for the European Union and its public health
and elderly care systems.
Yet, these systems are highly demanding to
those planning, installing and maintaining
them as to the caregivers as well.
Are the Europeans ready to cope with this reality? While ICT based assistance systems
enable the elderly to stay longer in their familiar surroundings, skilled AAL professionals are lacking.
Against this background, the engAGEnt project will develop a harmonised European
curriculum for vocational training that qualifies people for the job role of an AAL specialist/consultant. This job profile will include the knowledge, skills and competences for analysing the living situation of an elderly or physically impaired person and developing strategies to improve the living conditions of the elderly population.
