This Call 2017 “Ageing and place in a digitising world” is concerned with the ways in which the health and wellbeing of older people, at all stages of later life, is supported and promoted through the design of the social and physical environment, access to opportunities to learn, and the use of technologies of all kinds. As it is conventional, with “older” we here broadly refer to anyone over the age of 50: from those who are still healthy and active to those in the final stages of life, whether living at home or in long-term institutions. This group is rapidly growing in the population and the experience of later life is changing for many people. Although many older people remain very active, as they age, they are increasingly likely to have particular needs in terms of their living environment. To participate in learning and to have access to new technologies -and to be able to use them- becomes even more important as we age as our conditions, prospects and abilities are changing.

The overarching aim of our JPI is to find ways to improve the health and wellbeing of older people, to enable less-active elderly to be more engaged in social life and more active contributors to wider society, and to do this in cost-effective ways. Also, it is important to recognise the diversity of older people and to ensure that practical and policy changes do not unfairly put them at a disadvantage on the basis of factors like gender, ethnic origin, social class, location or disability.

To achieve this, we need a better understanding of how to introduce changes based on a multitude of needs in older people. We are interested, therefore, in understanding the implementation of new technologies in an inclusive manner, to help finding new solutions which accommodate individuals´ needs, aspirations and limitations, as well as the ways in which they learn and interact with others.
