InLife aims are to prolong and support the independent living of seniors with cognitive impairments, through interoperable, open, personalised and seamless ICT solutions that support home activities, communication, health maintenance, travel, mobility and socialisation tasks, with novel, scalable and viable business models, based on user/stakeholder identified needs and feedback from large-scale and multi-country service implementations.

The InLife 1st International Workshop will serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange ideas in the field of independent living and autonomous mobility of the older people with cognitive impairments.

Workshop Title: “Accessibility and interoperability – Achievable through standards?”
Venue: Budapest
Time: 14:00 – 17:30

Abstract: The success of IN LIFE, and especially its pilots’ networking, is heavily relying on compliance to standards. IN LIFE claims to use standardization and drive it further towards harmonization and completion with the objective to facilitate and support accessibility and interoperability – including eAccessibility and eInclusion. Legal provisions set the framework for the dos and don’ts of human life. Technical standards (whose majority today refer to ‘non-technical’ issues such as methodologies, management, eLearning, ethics and policies) are a prerequisite for a successful implementation of law in many walks of life.
