Ageing better

Book cover with photo of lady

Care for the elderly faces the biggest change it has ever seen. Not only because of concerns about the quality and affordability of care, but also because our view of ageing is gradually changing.

Over the next few decades

The percentage of old people in the population will rise, in part because of successful health policies. However, a longer life has problems of its own. Many ZonMw programmes are directed towards improving the health and welfare of elderly people. Our underlying conviction is that elderly people should be able to do things their own way, and as independently as possible, with the support of their social networks and – where necessary – professional help.

ZonMw works to achieve this through research, innovation, and attention for the dissemination and practical application of knowledge.

Active and Assisted Living

The Active and Assisted Living Joint Programme (AAL JP) is designed to foster the development of innovative technological/ICT-based products, services and systems to meet the needs of our ageing society and compensate for the expected staff shortages in the care sector. ZonMw is responsible for the implementation of AAL JP in the Netherlands.

Addressing societal challenges

In Europe, as well as globally, we face a number of societal challenges that no country or region can tackle alone. Addressing these so-called Grand Societal Challenges efficiently and effectively requires combined efforts and new ways of collaboration between countries. Today, there are 10 Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) with the aim to tackle Grand Societal Challenges. In a new brochure they explain the benefits of participating in a Joint Programming Initiative.
