EMF participates in CompAAL and engAGEnt.
Within the framework of CompAAL, new Role Profiles for Ambient-Assisted Living (AAL) Functions at European level will be identified and Training Guidelines will be developed to support VET Institutions in designing training courses that are in accordance with these. The aim of the project is to foster employability and prevent skilled staff shortages in the AAL field.
The engAGEnt Project is based on CompAAL. engAGEnt will create and validate a harmonised European curriculum based on the principles of ECVET which will qualify professionals for the Function of the AAL Consultant/Specialist. The aim is to educate professionals in designing, planning and implementing solutions that meet the individual needs of the elderly.
