A new EU research project, called PERSSILAA (PERsonalised ICT Supported Service for Independent Living and Active Ageing) has been launched and will run for the next three years.

PERSSILAA aims at the development and validation of a new service model that addresses frailty in community dwelling for older adults. The validation will be done in two regions: the Enschede region in the Netherlands and the Campania region in Italy. PERSSILAA builds on activities within the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Aging and on the results of earlier European projects.
