ALERT: Adapting Living and working Environments with the use of Robotic Technology solutions for helping older adults stay actively involved in their professional life
Research and Innovation Action Proposal submitted to the Digital Transformation in Health and Care (H2020-SC1-DTH-2018-2020) call of the Horizon 2020 EU Programme.
ALERT's main objective is to promote independent living and quality of life of older people over the age of 60 by supporting older people to stay actively involved in their professional life.
Consortium information: The consortium consists of 10 partners from Malta, Ireland, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. CoreTech Innovations has been appointed as the project coordinator.
CoreTech Innovations signed a contract with the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the National University of Ireland Galway to provide consultation services on the MARIO (Managing active and healthy aging with use of caring service robots) Horizon 2020 project.
The MARIO project addresses the difficult challenges of loneliness, isolation and dementia in older persons through the use of innovative service (companion) robots. The user design led MARIO robot was deployed across three pilots, a hospital (Italy), residential care (Ireland) and community setting (UK). This study is the only one to date which has tested and evaluated a companion robot developed with and for people with dementia over such an extended time period, in the real world of dementia care across three different care contexts and three different countries.
CoreTech Innovations presented a paper at the IEEE Mobile Cloud 2016 conference in Oxford, United Kingdom on Thursday 31st March.
A paper about Mobile Cloud Computing Techniques for Extending Computation and Resources in Mobile Devices was presented at the 4th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Cloud Computing, Services, and Engineering held between March 29 - April 1, at Oxford in the United Kingdom. This conference provided a great platform to researchers and professionals in the industry to exchange their latest research results and development activities on mobile cloud computing and services and share research ideas and results, emerging industry technologies, and latest advances.
