Zhuang Xiong, Junzhou Yan, Lingling Wang

In recent years, despite the slowdown in the world economic performance, the trend of world innovation is still booming. The Global Innovation Index 2019 released by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) showed that the growth rate of global research and development expenditure is higher than that of global economy. As the foundation of entrepreneurship, the continuous improvement of innovation develops entrepreneurial activities. Moreover, the scale of entrepreneurial groups is expanding, and a vigorous entrepreneurial boom has formed through the implementation of positive entrepreneurial policies (Wang et al., 2019).

The problem of the developed countries is the aging of the population. Developing countries, for the time being, do not experience it so urgently yet due to the lower average age of the population, but their standard of living is also beginning to improve.

In Europe this population group aged 65+ represent 18% of the 503 million Europeans, which should almost double by 2060 (Patterson, 2006). This trend of aging population causes additional problems such as increased costs on the treatment and care of those elderly people (Maresova et al., 2015a; 2015b). Therefore, there is ongoing effort to extend the active life of this group of people in order to allow them to stay economically and socially independent. And current technological devices and services can assist them in this process.
