Abstract / short description:
PleasureHome is a project in the field of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) which first and foremost supports the elderly in being able to live a happy and safe life in their own home for as long as possible.
For AAL to be successful, a diversified understanding of human expectations, social systems, healthcare infrastructure, privacy and the role of families, communities and carers is crucial, i.e. sociological, psychological, economic and market issues need to be considered alongside technological ones.

The objective of PleasureHome is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, expertise and best practice in AAL between Korea and Europe in order to create an AAL roadmap document with input from the experts involved in the consortium as well as high-level stakeholders in the EU and Korea.

As for the first experiences of cooperation, they are very positive. Despite some cultural differences -- which however also exist amongst EU member states -- there are nonetheless many overlaps and common interests in terms of business opportunities resulting from an ageing society.

The benefits for each of the partners are clear, since the representatives of the participating countries are the leaders on/in the respective markets/fields (e.g., Korea on the home entertainment market).

A cooperation between the EU and Korea promises to be the key to expanding and strengthening the impact of our already effective developments, products and services with respect to AAL.
