Smart environments for person-centered sustainable work and well-being

Project description

Innovative platform for ageing workers

As the European population is ageing, adult workers and employees need to improve their performance at work and quality of life. The EU-funded sustAGE project will explore how health and safety at work, continuous training, and proper workforce management allow ageing workers to be competitive at work. The project will provide a paradigm shift in human-machine interaction, combining seven strategic technology trends: IoT, machine learning, micro moments, temporal reasoning, recommender systems, data analytics, and gamification in a composite system integrated with the daily activities. The system will support employers and ageing employees to jointly increase well being, wellness at work, and productivity, recommending personalised cognitive and physical training activities, warning regarding occupational risks and maximising team performance.


"sustAGE aims to develop a person-centered solution for promoting the concept of ""sustainable work"" for EU industries.
The project provides a paradigm shift in human machine interaction, building upon seven strategic technology trends, IoT, Machine learning, micro-moments, temporal reasoning, recommender systems, data analytics and gamification to deliver a composite system integrated with the daily activities at work and outside, to support employers and ageing employees to jointly increase well-being, wellness at work and productivity. The manifold contribution focuses on the support of the employment and later retirement of older adults from work and the optimization of the workforce management. The sustAGE platform guides workers on work-related tasks, recommends personalized cognitive and physical training activities with emphasis on game and social aspects, delivers warnings regarding occupational risks and cares for their proper positioning in work tasks that will maximize team performance.
By combining a broad range of the innovation chain activities namely, technology R&D, demonstration, prototyping, pilots, and extensive validation, the project aims to explore how health and safety at work, continuous training and proper workforce management can prolongue older workers' competitiveness at work. The deployment of the proposed technologies in two critical industrial sectors and their extensive evaluation will lead to a ground-breaking contribution that will improve the performance and quality of life at work and beyond for many ageing adult workers."
