In this paper, the user requirements, along with the methodology adopted towards their identification within the i-PROGNOSIS framework (, are presented. The latter are placed within the concept of active and healthy ageing (AHA), focusing on the case of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) patients’ support. The bases for the user requirements identification were face-to-face sessions, focus groups and a large scale Web-survey. Towards the efficient user requirements identification and i-PROGNOSIS components development, exemplified usage scenarios and related business processes the stakeholders of i-PROGNOSIS can perform, are discussed. Overall, 122 functional and non-functional requirements were identified, serving as a basis for the spiral development model of i-PROGNOSIS, revealing the beneficial role of the users in designing solutions within the AHA concept.
