ACTivating InnoVative IoT smart living environments for AGEing well
Funded under: H2020-IOT-2016-2017
Project reference: Grant Agreement n. 732679
Start date 1 January 2017 End date 30 June 2020
Keywords: Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA); Active Assisted Living (AAL); telemedicine; daily activity data analysis
The overall goal of ACTIVAGE is to demonstrate through objective indicators that standard-secure-intraoperative IoT ecosystems enable new sustainable business models and solutions for active and healthy ageing of European Senior Citizens, providing benefits on quality of life and autonomy to users, contribute to the sustainability of the health and social care systems, and strengthen European industry competitiveness through innovation.
By reaching this objective ACTIVAGE will be the flagship reference for healthcare providers who want to create, deploy and scale up innovative IoT services in AHA Europe and beyond.
This way, healthcare organisations will access to a renewed and redefined AAL market, with high potential development throughout Europe (and beyond), as it addresses the needs of health and social systems to meet the higher demand for care.
In addition, it adapts to the needs of an ageing population (by 2050 +65 aged people will grow by 70%, +80 by 170%) while keeping the health and social care systems sustainable in societies with a smaller labour force.
ACTIVAGE will create a unified platform for all the stakeholders to roll-out their businesses in a cooperative environment boosting their individual capabilities and reaching a continuously growing multimillion users/customers demand.
SI-Lab involvement in the project mainly concerned two fronts: the development of an audio / video communication system capable of connecting healthcare professionals with "patients" directly from their homes (WP9) and the participation in the research activities committed to defining the rules of interoperability and safety of the solutions proposed by the different deployment sites (WP3).
