3   Link   CAPSIL (International Support of a Common Awareness and Knowledge Platform for Studying and Enabling Independent Living)
The aging of society is the single most important aspect of health care in the 21st century. Many intriguing ICT solutions are being developed within the EU, USA, and Japan for helping older people remain independent longer. However, these solutions tend to be fragmented and heterogeneous. The CAPSIL Coordinating Support Action (CSA) team is a strategic international coalition of University and Industrial partners that already have extensive teams developing hardware/software/knowledge solutions to independent living based on user requirements. All partners of CAPSIL are already members of regional and national centres on aging engaged in the process of helping to establish public policy and international standards.
4   Link   CompanionAble (Integrated Cognitive Assistive & Domotic Companion Robotic Systems for Ability & Security)
There are widely acknowledged imperatives for helping the elderly live at home (semi)-independently for as long as possible. Without cognitive stimulation support the elderly dementia and depression sufferers can deteriorate rapidly and the carers ill face a more demanding task. Both groups are increasingly at the risk of social exclusion. CompanionAble will provide the synergy of Robotics and Ambient Intelligence technologies and their semantic integration to provide for a care-giver's assistive environment. This will support the cognitive stimulation and therapy management of the care-recipient. This is mediated by a robotic companion (mobile facilitation) working collaboratively with a smart home environment (stationary facilitation).
5   Link   CONFIDENCE (Ubiquitous Care System to Support Independent Living)
The main objective of this project is the development and integration of innovative technologies to build a care system for the detection of abnormal events (such as falls) or unexpected behaviours that may be related to a health problem in elderly people.
6   Link   ePAL (extending Proffesional Active Life)

Fifteen of Europe’s leading companies and research establishments in mobile and home networking, software development, consumer electronics and domestic appliances have joined together in Amigo – an integrated project that will realize the full potential of home networking to improve people’s lives.
12   Link   Netcarity (Ambient technology to support older people at home)
Netcarity is a European project researching and testing technologies which will help older people to improve their wellbeing, independence, safety and health at home. The project is investigating how new and existing technologies can be integrated cost effectively into people’s homes, making them feel more comfortable about remaining in this familiar environment. It is developing and testing a new technology infrastructure for homes, with systems that enhance communication with friends, family and care givers; support everyday living and promote a sense of social inclusion. It will encourage older people to live independently and inspire them to be more socially active. Netcarity’s goal is to turn older peoples’ homes into supportive environments which include them in society and postpone or avoid the expensive and traumatic move into care homes.
13   Link   DIADEM Project
Older adults are now spending more time online. However they use web services less often and have less experience with them than younger adults, due to their age related declines in abilities. Lack of web service use puts older adults at a disadvantage in terms of their abilities to live and function independently. This research project Delivering Inclusive Access to Disabled and Elderly Members (DIADEM) is developing an innovative assistive technology which will ensure that the many services available over the Internet are open and accessible to as many older adults as possible.

16   Link   Validating Mentoring 2
Validating Mentoring 2 project will support the needs of disabled people and others disadvantaged in the job market by developing systems for the recognition of their non-formal and informal learning. This is particularly important for a group that, compared to its peers, lacks formal qualifications with the consequent effects upon their employability.
17   Link   ÆGIS (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Standards)
The ÆGIS project seeks to determine whether 3rd generation access techniques will provide a more accessible, more exploitable and deeply embeddable approach in mainstream ICT (desktop, rich Internet and mobile applications). This approach is developed and explored with the Open Accessibility Framework (OAF) through which aspects of the design, development and deployment of accessible mainstream ICT are addressed.
18   Link   EU4ALL
The aim of EU4ALL is to improve the efficiency and efficacy of implementing these strategies by developing an open service architecture for ALL. To achieve a wide impact the approach taken is not to develop a single EU4ALL system but a standards based framework that facilitates the integration of the approach with a wide range of eLearning systems.
19   Link   FUTURAGE project
FUTURAGE is a two-year project funded under FP7 to create the definitive road map for ageing research in Europe for the next 10-15 years. A first set of workshops take place in March (15-16 and 25-26).
The workshops represent the second stage of the FUTURAGE process and will enable experts from Europe and beyond to discuss research priorities across a wide range of disciplines. Participation is by invitation only.
20   Link   ETICA project
ETICA stands for "Ethical Issues of Emerging ICT Applications", and is funded by the European Commission under the 7th framework programme.
The ETICA project will identify emerging Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and their potential application areas in order to analyse and evaluate ethical issues arising from these. By including a variety of stakeholders and disciplinary perspectives, it will grade and rank foreseeable ethical risks. Based on the study governance arrangements currently used to address ICT ethics in Europe, ETICA will recommend concrete governance structures to address the most salient ethical issues identified. These recommendations will form the basis of more general policy recommendations aimed at addressing ethical issues in emerging ICTs before or as they arise.
Taking an inclusive and interdisciplinary approach will ensure that ethical issues are identified early, recommendations will be viable and acceptable, and relevant policy suggestions will be developed. This will contribute to the larger aims of the Science in Society programme by developing democratic and open governance of ICT. Given the high importance of ICT to further a number of European policy goals, it is important that ethical issues are identified and addressed early. The provision of viable policy suggestions will have an impact well beyond the scientific community. Ethical issues have the potential to jeopardise the success of individual technical solutions. The acceptance of the scientific-technological basis of modern society requires that ethical questions are addressed openly and transparently. The ETICA project is therefore a contribution to the European Research Area and also to the quality of life of European citizens.
Furthermore, ethical awareness can help the European ICT industry gain a competitive advantage over less sensitive competitors, thus contributing to the economic well-being of Europe.
