The City of Aarhus developed the concept of CareWare in 2010 and since then it has become increasingly popular among professionals in the field of welfare technology.
CareWare focuses on new technologies targeted at the fields of health care and assisted living. What we normally refer to as welfare and health technologies. Technologies or methodologies for the physical or cognitive rehabilitation of citizens, as well as solutions that contribute to a better work environment of the care staff.
The aim with the CareWare Conference is to enhance innovation and the development of technological solutions - and the dissemination of knowledge about these technologies and their use.
Background and mission
CareWare is part of a strategy that the City of Aarhus uses to further technological advances within health care and assisted living. The city wants to be an attractive partner for both Danish and international companies and scientific institutions from within this field. CareWare is also aimed at strengthening co-operation between enterprises, research and educational institutions, and local as well as regional authorities and institutions throughout Denmark and the Nordic countries.
CareWare is directed at decision makers and professionals who are working with or for the elderly and people with disabilities or chronic diseases. We are also inviting businesses, entrepreneurs, research & development institutions, as well as educational and training environments with an interest in health and welfare technology.
