EIP AHA ENoLL Commitment • ENoLL published a commitment to EIP AHA Ac=on Group C2: Interoperable independent Living Solu=ons • Ac=ve in the Interoperability sub-‐group in the area of applica=on interoperability and suppor=ng the socio-‐economic evidence and implementa=on subgroups (mainly in the WPs related to User Empowerment and involvement) • ENoLL Commitment is built on following: • Coordina=on of a pan-‐European community of Living Labs in the domain of Health and AAL that will contribute to the availability of interoperable independent living solu=ons with special focus on applica;on, organiza;onal and service interoperability, and that will support cross-‐border development and tes;ng of solu;ons, considering contextual factors, business models and strong involvement of user communi=es • Predecessor of this commitment is the APOLLON project, carried out by many ENoLL members, and that has taken an important role in networking and harmonising Living Lab approaches throughout Europe • Results from the APOLLON project have been oﬃcially transferred to ENoLL for open exploita;on towards the wider community of Living Labs, including the Health and Independent Living Thema=c Network • ENoLL is also involved in the FI-‐PPP as a partner in the CONCORD project suppor=ng 20/09/21 one of the main FI-‐PPP pillars: the user driven approach
EIP AHA ENoLL Planned Activities • Based on the concept of community and consensus building and, exchange of knowledge and experiences, ENoLL carries out projects and relies on its members while collec=ng and bringing together knowledge from mul=ple projects and ac=ons carried out a local, regional and European level in the AHA domain. As part of its networking ac=vi=es, ENoLL plans for organising AHA workshops and networking ac=vi=es to: • Gather input from many projects about the current usage of standards, challenges and success stories in the implementa;on of interoperable solu;ons and applica;ons for Independent Living • Promote the usage in current and future projects of interoperable AHA solu;ons aligned with EIP-‐AHA plan and ac=ons. • Forster partnerships among the ENoLL members and between them and the FI-‐PPP and AALOA community as a plaYorm to design and implement these solu=ons and applica=ons involving many SMEs and many users all over Europe to gather evidence about return of investment 20/09/21
