      • The incidence of disability increases as the population ages :
        • 37% of persons aged 65 to 74
        • 60% of persons aged +75
      • About 16% of the population is +65 (this percentage is rising)
      • Public spending on long-term care is projected to increase by 1¼% of GDP by 2060 (*2).
      • The EC R&D Programmes support the usage of ICT for improving the quality of life of the elderly and their autonomy while reducing the costs of health and social care (*3)
