The AAL’s Smart Ageing Prize is entering its most exciting phase after the judges shortlisted the 5 best teams of the competition. There are now only a few days to go to until the announcement of the winner of this European innovative prize which rewards the most innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing.
A new report, the “AAL Market and Investment Report” has recently been published by the AAL Programme. The report, which has been implemented in the framework of the Market Observatory Support Action financed by the AAL Programme, has been developed in collaboration with Technopolis.
The Smart Ageing Prize is offering €50,000 for products and services that use innovative digital technologies to support older adults to participate fully in social life.
Dr Shabs Rajasekharan is a consultant for Smarter Futures EESV, supporting entrepreneurial teams to create new markets. He is one of the eight judges for the Smart Ageing Prize, run by the AAL Programme and supported by Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre.
With four weeks to go to the deadline, we spoke to Shabs to find out what he will be looking for from applications to the challenge.
