Abstract: The aim of this book is to summarize the current debate on the key elements of ageing societies (Section A) and to link it to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for active ageing (Section B) by using an application/policy field approach as an overall framework. ICT-based applications were chosen as a particular focus since they offer a number of very promising applications for active ageing in policy fields like health, learning, employability and housing. The book also aims to stimulate further scientific discussions in this field. Its key question is how to tackle the challenges and exploit the opportunities offered by ageing societies by using the suggested research approach of ICT for active ageing (ICT4AA). This approach is discussed in detail in Section B. We believe that it is complementary to other concepts for active ageing like healthy nutrition, sports and recreational health.
