Join us at the second CEN-CENELEC STAIR-AHA meeting, which will take place on January 31st, 2019 in Brussels. The meeting will also be the culmination and final event of the PROGRESSIVE project.
The meeting will debate on how the “change of mindsets” that PROGRESSIVE aims to bring about, i.e. the effective inclusion of older people in the standards development process, can be promoted and put into practice in the future, so that standards that underpin ICT products and services address the needs and challenges of older people and so that those products and services can support active and healthy lifestyles.
The focus of the meeting will be primarily on:
- Age-friendly communities as enablers of active and healthy ageing, incl. a look at the WHO Global Network for Age-friendly Cities and Communities and the PROGRESSIVE Guidelines for Standards around ICT for AHA and Age-friendly Communities.
- Age-friendly smart homes, focusing on technology as a tool for independent living, the PROGRESSIVE Guidelines for Standards around ICT for AHA for Smart Homes that are Age-friendly, and a new European certification scheme for ageing-in-place.
- Inclusiveness in standardisation, with accessibility and usability as a use case, looking at the new European Accessibility Act which is improving the accessibility of products and services in the single market, and an assessment of the “Design for All Protocol” in European standardisation projects.
- Actions to promote user co-production in standardisation and presentation of an official PROGRESSIVE and STAIR-AHA statement and policy guideline for a new approach to AHA standards engaging end users.
