The AALIANCE2 project, funded by the European Commission's ICT Programme within the European Framework Programme, will continue and built upon the successful work and the wide network already established in the AALIANCE Innovation platform (2008-2010). Subject of the Coordination Action will be Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions based on advanced ICT technologies for ageing and wellbeing of older persons in Europe.

AALIANCE2 seeks to:
1. Transform the existing AALIANCE Community in a long-term sustainable network:
- to create the central entity for all AAL-related issues and stakeholder in Europe
- to form an European Technology Platform focusing not solely on technology but on integrated solutions for a societal challenge
- to provide a central node for global interaction

2. Find solutions for major challenges in AAL which consist of:
- coordinating the various activities of European industry and research institutions in the field of Ambient Assisted Living by building consenus upon research priorities in a AAL Roadmap and Strategic Research Agenda for the upcoming decades
- standardisation requirements in the field of ICT and Wellbeing (incl. care and healthcare standards)
- providing recommendations for a overcoming market barriers and effective regulations in AAL markets
- investigating the the current state-of-the-art and market developments in AAL in North America and Asia

3. Support the implementation of coherent strategies of the public and private sector.
