The “AALIANCE“ project (2008 to 2010) focused on ambient assisted living (AAL) solutions that are based on advanced information and communication technology and are applied in the areas “AAL for Persons“, “AAL in the Community“, and “AAL at Work“ –  the latter being one of the most promising markets in industrialized countries. "AALIANCE" contributes to improving cooperation within the AAL supply chain in Europe, and to strengthening the position of European manufacturers and service providers of AAL solutions globally.
