Project leaders may be individual companies or consortiums (between companies, between companies and research laboratories, or between companies and healthcare professionals/health centers/nursing homes/non-profit associations) in the Aquitaine Limousin Poitou-Charentes region.
Designed by the Caisse des Dépôts’s Department for the Digital Transition, the "@utonomy and Aging Well Throughout the Country" program is led by Autonom'lab, whose members include the New Aquitaine Region, the Regional Health Agency, the French departments of Corrèze, Creuse and Haute-Vienne and the Caisse des Dépôts.
This program aims to help local authorities learn about and implement digital services related to personal independence and aging.
An assessment of local areas’ ability to address the major theme of "e-health for the elderly and helping prevent the loss of independence" led to the identification of several specific issues that could be addressed by technological/digital/service innovations.

Selection Committee and the call for project partners:
Autonom'lab is a Living Lab for health and personal independence that aims to help cultivate projects and innovative solutions for
increasing personal autonomy. As a Living Lab, our mission is to put users at the heart of our research and to predict changes and new needs in health, personal autonomy, and aging and to ensure greater use of innovation.
With hospitals increasingly opening themselves up to the city outside (via outpatient care, postoperative follow-up, home care...), ENGIE wants to help grow innovative solutions in the burgeoning e-health sector and to offer new services for patients, rofessionals and operators.
Additionally, with over with 154,950 employees in over 70 countries, ENGIE is a local presence in many places, with close relationships with local authorities and citizens. ENGIE provides its customers, local governments, health centers and housing communities with a wide range of successful and innovative digital solutions.
Relying in particular on the expertise and know-how of its subsidiaries (ENGIE Cofely & ENGIE Ineo) in the housing and health sectors, ENGIE decided to work with the Living Lab Autonom'lab to launch a joint call for projects in order to facilitate the development of new solutions and services.
