Research abstract in English

The aim of the project is to support the development of a common, open, standardised and integrated European platform to deliver connected ICT-based assistive living solutions for the elderly, building on inititiatives at the national level and, taking account of different funding mechanisms in EU member
states (Social insurance-based; Germany and Hungary, private insurance-based; Netherlands and taxation-based; UK), to develop and assess business models to support the mainstream provision of
asistive solutions. The focus will be on dementia sufferers, but the platform will offer the potential to be extended to other chronic conditions.
