Supporting Independent LiVing for the Elderly through Robotics

Project description

ICT for Ageing and Wellbeing

SILVER searches for new robotics based technologies to assist elderly people in their everyday lives. Their purpose is to help older people to continue independent living at home even if they have physical or cognitive disabilities. U unique aspect of SILVER is that it uses a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) process to identify and select the new technologies and solutions. In Europe, the PCP has so far been an under-utilized tool for promoting innovation. One of the aims of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the PCP approach to address societal and governmental needs. In total 33 tenders have been received which will be reviewed by a panel of experts on elderly care, robotics and/or general business knowledge. Their preliminary ranking will be inspected and reviewed by a panel which will make the final decision on which tenderers are to be awarded contracts.
