Robotics in Care Services: A Finnish Roadmap

In Finland, as in many other European economies, elderly people prefer to continue their independent living at home as long as possible. To support this trend of “ageing in place” and still preserve the quality of elderly care, robots and other new ICT-technologies will enable innovative help in organizing daily activities.

The public discussion on the use of robots in care is lively. However, the ROSE project (Robots and the future of welfare services) consortium discovered the need of an overview of the opportunities and challenges in the Finnish context, based on available knowledge from Finland and abroad. The purpose of this roadmap is then twofold, to inform the discussion as well as to engage in the debate. More...
