Innovative ways of banking designed for and by the elderly
The goal of the research project Bank4Elder is the development of new banking applications adapted to fit the needs of older people living in rural areas in order
to enable them to independently take part in social life. Modern banking business should be conducted in a way that takes into consideration the issues of aesthetics, accessibility, user friendliness and individual needs that typically arise from having the elderly as a target group.
The implementation of this project is based on the European “Ambient Living Joint Programme” (AAL JP) and the framework program “Microsystems” conducted by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Sponsors are the European Union, the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism and the Ministry of Education and Research.
