SAAM – Supporting Active Ageing through Multimodal Coaching, is one of the eight projects that have received funding in 2017 by the EU Research and Innovation Program Horizon 2020 to develop systems for personalised coaching for well-being and care of people as they age. Representatives of all project teams met for the first time in Brussels on 1st March 2018 to look for possibilities for cross project collaboration.
The main idea of this networking was all the international consortia, funded under the PM-15 call of Horizon 2020, to discuss and collaborate on a common architecture of their technology solutions. That is why the presentations of all participants were focused on issues such as technical aspects of their work, envisaged architecture of the future systems, etc.
Vicente Traver Salcedo - R&D Manager at Technologies for Health and Wellbeing - ITACA, Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain, introduced the existing frameworks and solutions in the aria of personalised coaching for elderly people. All partners participated in the debate about main components, communication channels and data models. They discussed possible collaboration tools of their future cooperation: webpage, forum, mailing lists, shared calendar with events of interest, technical workshops and meetings, etc. The representatives of the eight projects also decided to organise common dissemination activities.
