Abstract: Ageing societies face tough challenges namely in terms of the pressure on their healthcare and social security systems, which makes it urgent to find new models to accommodate current demographic trends. A possible answer to this challenge may come from new integrated and technology-supported services. In this direction, a European roadmapping initiative has addressed the implementation of a new vision for technological support to ageing. The main findings of this initiative are presented as a roadmap, which synthesizes the contribution of a large number of stakeholders coming from different backgrounds.
Keywords: Roadmap, ICT and Ageing, Collaborative care ecosystems.
