  • City4Age - The ultimate city for the elderly population

    Prof. Paolo Paolini
    The European funded City4Age project aims to make cities more age-friendly. It will create innovative ICT tools and services for early detection of risks related to frailty and of Mild Cognitive Impairments (MCI). The services will be tested in several European cities, as well as in Singapore.

  • New booklet shows how EU research and innovation funding impacts your daily life

    The European Commission has published a new booklet showing a few examples where EU support for research and innovation is making a real difference in the lives of citizens and society as a whole. It is aimed at all age groups so everyone can understand the good work EU funding can do.
  • Breaking down barriers to EU text and data mining uptake

    Text and data mining (TDM) has huge potential research and innovation, but the inhibitive European regulatory framework means that EU uptake remains low. The FutureTDM project will first identify these barriers, and then seek to dismantle them.

  • Connecting the dots for medical holography

    No glasses, no headset, no smartphone - it is possible to produce 3D images that observers can view without cumbersome props. Base these displays on input from medical imaging devices and you could have the makings of a powerful new way to view patient scans. Holography holds the key, says an innovative SME that is developing this technology with EU support.

  • The MUSES software: greater engagement of the user in the security of corporate information systems

    The user is perceived as the weakest link in IT security. More often than not risky user behaviour finds its roots in simple ignorance. The necessity to proactively engage the user on IT security has become acute with recent developments in the corporate world, such as the introduction of mobile technologies or the Bring Your Own Device trend. Project MUSES has developed the prototype of a software that provides security guidance to the user by offering real-time, context-based recommendations.

  • Amputees to benefit from advanced prosthetics control

    A breakthrough in prosthetics technology by EU-funded researchers will provide amputees with clinically and commercially viable artificial limbs offering intuitive, proportional and simultaneous control of hand, wrist and elbow movements in the near future.
  • My-AHA | An ICT platform for healthy ageing

    My-AHA (my Active and Healthy Ageing) project aims to reduce frailty risk by improving physical activity and cognitive function, psychological state, social resources, nutrition, sleep and overall well-being.

  • EU project to delay frailty among older persons by bridging health data and new technologies

    Prof. Vasileios Megalooikonomou
    FrailSafe will combine state of the art information technologies and data mining techniques with high-level expertise in the field of health and ageing. The project is funded by the European Research programme Horizon 2020 and will last three years.

  • ICT4Life: ICT services for Life Improvement for the Elderly

    Mr. Alejandro Sánchez-Rico
    ICT4Life is a three-year project co-financed under Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, that kicked off earlier this year with the ambition to provide new services for integrated care employing user-friendly ICT tools, ultimately increasing patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other dementias and their caregivers’ quality of life and autonomy at home.

  • i-PROGNOSIS project builds early detection test of Parkinsons’ Disease

    Parkinson's Disease is a progressive disease of the nervous system which affects around 6.3 million people worldwide, most of them aged 55 and over. Symptoms appear gradually and slowly get worse, making it difficult to diagnose. Today there is still no specific test for the condition and treatment options only help to manage symptoms. This is why the project consortium has joined forces to build early detection test and design innovative interventions using the potential of new technologies.
