Ageing and Innovation in Welfare States- A social scientific approach to product innovation in highly institutionalised markets

Creado el 2012-08-29 11:42:43 por Adriana Martínez Sans

AAL-solutions are perceived by many as a potential boom industry. This promise stands in stark contrast to their limited market success. This lack of market penetration can be partly explained by inappropriate market analysis. Conventional market surveys of AAL solutions usually refer to the demographic change as a sufficient evidence of their market potential. This approach ignores that markets for AAL- innovation takes place in highly institutionalised markets shaped by the welfare settings. Therefore, this paper looks at welfare institutions and examine how they shape the structure of care provision. Different welfare regimes lead to different requirements for AAL-innovation. A one-size-fits-all is likely to fail.
