InnoRenew CoE researchers attended the Pharaon project’s plenary meeting in Amsterdam from 9–11 November 2021. At the meeting, partners presented their work, shared best practices and discussed next steps.
Mateja Erce presented ongoing testing and validation progress at the Slovenian pilot. To date, older adults have tested a video conferencing system (Daisy), smart bracelets and SeniorsPhone (an easy-to-use smartphone application), while family and friends have tested tools to help stay in contact with their loved ones at the retirement home and professional caregivers have tested tools to help personalize care, monitor comfort and simplify their work.
Dr. Michael Burnard and Alenka Volk presented Pharaon’s open call for third-party projects to demonstrate their technologies at Pharaon’s pilot sites.
The Pharaon project is working towards creating, testing and demonstrating digital solutions to improve the well-being, health and happiness of older adults.
