Description

Bridging the gap between EU project results and service provision
How do we get European research and innovation project results out of the lab? HAIVISIO will help EU-funded eHealth and active and healthy ageing projects to set a common strategy for jointly disseminating their results. The project will organise events and training courses and facilitate an online community.

Objective

A large amount of resources have been given since the beginning of both the FP7 and CIP, on research and innovation projects related to eHealth, Active Ageing and Independent Living with a focus on empowering people with age related dependencies or disabilities to live independently, delay/avoid institutionalisation and staying active and solutions that combine health, social care and smart living systems and 'age-friendly' environments.This large amount of projects, however, seems fragmented to their individual aims and objectives, creating a large need for cross project communication and interactivity that is required for a wider societal and business impact. Several following drawbacks have been identified:-Lack of connectivity and knowledge sharing between all the projects that are dealing with similar health, ageing and inclusion problems or complementary technologies.-Lack of awareness and effective dialog between stakeholders involved in health, ageing and inclusion-care and all the research and innovation projects funded by the EC.- Slow up-take of technological innovation due to a lack of appropriate visibility and valuation of project results quality and potential- Lack of awareness of the wider societal and business impact that research and innovation results on health, ageing and inclusion can bring to local and regional communitiesHAIVISIO will enhance visibility and awareness on the results generated from eHealth, Active Ageing and Independent Living projects, supporting a community building around these results, through a series of communication activities and synergies exploration. The proposed project will engage all relevant projects in a collective and synergetic way, identifying best-practices, involving the most active partners and stakeholders and disseminating widely the added value and assets generated from each project. It will link and work in tandem will almost all relevant projects funded by the EC.
