Smart and healthy living at home

Topic identifier: DT-TDS-01-2019

Citizens in a rapidly ageing European population are at greater risk of cognitive impairment, frailty and multiple chronic health conditions with considerable negative consequences for their independence, quality of life and for the sustainability of health and care systems. The challenge is to foster large-scale deployment of integrated digital solutions which will bring improved quality of life to citizens while demonstrating significant efficiency gains in health and care delivery across Europe. The deadline for submmitting proposals is 14 November 2018.

A mix of advanced ICT ranging from biophotonics to robotics, from artificial intelligence to big data and from IoT to smart wearables can address these challenges. A platform for smart living at home should integrate these technologies in an intelligent manner.

Proposals should address one of the two following areas:

1) Intelligent and personalised digital solutions for sustaining and extending healthy and independent living.

2) Personalised early risk detection and intervention.

Expected Impact:

  • Emergence of European-led platform for smart and healthy and independent living at home;
  • Increased competitiveness of the European ICT industry in the domain, through enhanced interoperability, best practices for viable business and financing models and scalable markets;
  • Demonstrate links and build synergies with Member States' and regional initiatives in this area;
  • Improved and evidence-based efficiency of health and care systems with demonstrated added-value of underlying technologies;
  • Improved quality of life and health status for involved users and carers, with demonstrated added-value of underlying technologies;
  • User accepted, validated innovative solutions addressing accessibility, privacy, security, vulnerability, liability, and trust in connected data spaces.
