A European Commission study has analysed the impact of EU projects on the topic of ICT for Active and Health Ageing. The analysis includes projects conducted over the last 11 years and funded under three different programmes: the Framework Programme 7, the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme and Horizon 2020.
The study presents a selection of 25 most influential projects based on the European Commission’s Triple Win Strategy: improved quality of life, increased efficiency of health and long-term care, and market growth and expansion of the EU industry. One of these projects is IN LIFE, in which Open Evidence has been participating during the last 3 years.
INLIFE has developed interoperable, open, personalised and seamless ICT solutions in order to prolong and support the independent living of seniors with cognitive impairment. These solutions can be accessed through an online platform that groups them. During the project, the IN LIFE system has been tested by 1218 participants in 6 pilot sites (UK, SE, NL, ES, EL, SL). Open Evidence has analysed the most suitable Business Models for IN LIFE, taking into account the specific characteristics of each country, user and tool.
