Deliverables

  • Initial Exploitation Plan for Civic Open Data Engagement

    Initial Exploitation Plan for Civic Open Data Engagement (report, M12) This deliverable considers different exploitation aspects of our technical and process innovation beyond the scope of the project: Market potential and business plan, transferability and sustainability. The initial exploitation plan will provide an outline for our exploitation and business plan based on the insights from our first co-creation activities in UK and Germany. This outline will present the structure according to which the market potential will be further analysed. In addition TT will outline an agreement for how to collaborate among the partners concerning IPR. The task will be led by TT in collaboration with FTB, AUTH, UPM, ULANC, ifib, RCM and ZAR.

  • Recruitment & Engagement Plan Zaragoza and Central Macedonia

    Recruitment & Engagement Plan Zaragoza and Central Macedonia (report, M13) This deliverable feeds into Task 3.1 Co-creation Recruitment & Engagement Planning For Trial Sites (Leader: ifib, Duration:M2-M13) Mobile Age will invite different stakeholder groups to co-creation events that explore the creation of mobile applications for senior citizens based on open public data. Preparation includes activities related to discovery of data sources, including communication with data providers (existing sources, data collection, annotation, pre-processing). Depending on the participants and use cases different workshop formats have to be planned. This task also includes the planning for transfer of methodology results from Bremen and South Lakeland to Zaragoza and Central Macedonia.

  • Interim Study on accessibility, digital mobility & open data

    Interim Study on accessibility, mobility & open data (Report, M 12) This deliverable is linked to Task 1.1 Study on accessibility, digital mobility and open data (Leader: ULANC, Duration: M1-M18) We will use the exploratory workshops in phase 1 of the Mobile Age project to develop a situated, practice-based understanding of access and mobility. This study will be based on qualitative research that will observe the practices of mobile technology use of older people. These observations will be complemented with interviews and focus groups (that will form part of the exploratory events). The results of this study will inform the format and structure of further co-creation events. 1. Preparation (month 1 - 2) 2. Preliminary study with senior citizens (focus groups, walking studies, interviews, cultural probes) in Bremen and South Lakeland (month 3 – 6) 3. Studies on mobility and independent living (month 7 – 16) 1. Stage 1: senior citizens with access 1. Bremen authors from Seniorenlotse 2. Stage 2: senior citizens with required help / intermediaries... indirect access to technology (through intermediaries) 1. Isolated people (e.g. South Lakeland) 2. Language barriers (e.g. Bremen uses Turkish speaking senior citizens) 4. Analysis and write-up (month 17-18)

  • SaaS Generic Software Components

    (a) Early (b) Final SaaS Generic Software Components (i.e. Search, Annotation) (Report, M11) Task 2.3 OSCPSEP SaaS Components & API Development (Leader: TT, Duration: M6-M11) The task will prepare a way to annotate relevant OGD sources so that they can be correctly mapped to common formats used in the OSCPSEP database. It prepares a set of solutions to collect data from OGD sources using APIs, search engine indexing, and web scraping. In addition it provides a unified search across selected websites to implement a loose integration of public services. The Tingtun search service will be used as the basis for this task. TT will uptake this task, with AUTH and ZGZ supporting the activities.

  • Recruitment & Engagement Plan Bremen and South Lakeland

    Recruitment & Engagement Plan Bremen and South Lakeland (report, M4) This deliverable feeds into Task 3.1 Co-creation Recruitment & Engagement Planning For Trial Sites (Leader: ifib, Duration:M2-M13) Mobile Age will invite different stakeholder groups to co-creation events that explore the creation of mobile applications for senior citizens based on open public data. Preparation includes activities related to discovery of data sources, including communication with data providers (existing sources, data collection, annotation, pre-processing). Depending on the participants and use cases different workshop formats have to be planned. This task also includes the planning for transfer of methodology results from Bremen and South Lakeland to Zaragoza and Central Macedonia.

  • OSCPSEP requirements

    OSCPSEP requirements (Report, M6) Task 2.1 OSCPSEP requirements and specifications (Leader: AUTH, Duration: M1-M17) Within this task the requirements of the OSCPSEP platform will be collected and analysed, based on the analysis performed in WP3 and WP4. The resulting requirements will define the basic functionality of the OSCPSEP platform in order to enable verification of project results and will be documented in the deliverable D5. AUTH will lead this task, with all partners participating. At the next stage, this task will deal with the functional baseline of the system and describe “how” the system will fulfil requirements identified in D5 In order to ensure quality (implementation) results it is important to specify technical, operational and support characteristics of the system. The performance related behaviour in respect to the platform KPIs will be addressed within this task. This task will result in the production of two versions of deliverable D5, the early and final OSCPSEP platform technical specifications. The early version will define all the basic OSCPSEP platform functionality, while the final version will incorporate advanced functionality, as well as functionality driven from the Pilot case requirements. AUTH will lead this task, with UPM providing input.

  • Project Handbook

    Project Handbook (report, M2) This handbook will detail the internal communication, and provide guidance and templates. This deliverable covers project co-ordination: the overall organisation and co-ordination of the project team and its work. This involves overseeing all activities, assessing progress and establishing priorities to satisfy dependencies between the objectives of the project. The formal management involves organising the timely execution of formal contractual obligations toward the commission and among the partners. Task 6.1: Project setup (Leader: ULANC, Duration:M1-M2) This task is dedicated to setting the Mobile Age project in motion. It will include (i) setting up a light-weight Central Project Office; (ii) kick-off-meeting which includes a workshop with presentation from partners on different aspects of Mobile Age, (iii) definition of administrative reporting and auditing procedures (iv) design and implementation of standard formats and forms for project documentation (v) definition of quality assurance cycle for all project deliverables (vi) deployment of technical infrastructure to support the management processes. Task 6.2: Project management (Leader:ULANC, Duration:M1-M36) This task is responsible for the effective management of the project according to the plan described in section 3.2. Meetings are scheduled in addition to regular teleconferences and will alternate between the field sites to allow for more engagement with local actors for all project partners.

  • Interim OSCPSEP technical specification

    OSCPSEP technical specifications (Report, M11) This deliverable feeds into Task 2.6 Overall System integration and technical testing of demonstrator applications (Leader: AUTH, Duration: M7-M36) The first step towards the integration of the OSCPSEP modules will be the consolidation of the input from the requirements analysis performed in T2.1, as well as the design of the individual components and the overall architecture. Task 2.6 will initially provide both the generic guidelines for the development of the modules, as well as the exact integration tests for the early and final modules. One of the main outcomes of this task will be the successful release of the early and final OSCPSEP platform versions. The early OSCPSEP platform will serve as a benchmark for deploying the early pilot prototypes and will serve as input for the final specifications of the platform, while the final OSCPSEP platform will be used for the full implementation of the pilot cases, as specified in WP4. The final platform will also incorporate the guidelines for the co-design methodology to be fostered. The two OSCPSEP prototypes will be released as 2 different versions. Using the released platform versions, T2.6 will perform a phased deployment of prototype applications & front-end components developed under T4.2 and T4.3 across the four European trial sites. Before the pilot applications can be evaluated with end-users at the field sites (T3.6) an overall integration test will be carried out including assessment of data availability, front-end and back-end functionality and usability aspects. This way functionality will be aligned and user interfaces will be fine-tuned. AUTH will uptake this task with UPM, TT, FTB and ULANC participating.

  • Behaviour Analytics & Workflow Software Components

    Behaviour Analytics & Workflow Software Components (Report, M13) Task 2.5 Behaviour Analytics & Service Workflow Engine Development (Leader: ULANC, Duration: M4-M13) This task will explore the development of novel technologies to facilitate a radically different approach to public service integration and enhancement that focuses on understanding individual and collective ‘front-end’ interaction behaviours. Combining recent advances in on and offline user interaction analytics and workflow control capabilities (e.g. BPEL, BPMN) this task will involve the development of web components to support personalised mobile interactions (WP4) that minimise the burden placed on senior citizens when performing tasks that demand interaction with multiple public services that span organisational boundaries. For public service providers we will develop mechanisms that enable the definition of new workflows to connect heterogeneous public services and provide analytical visualisation and reporting tools to deliver actionable insights to assist in understanding how existing public services are used by senior citizens. Central to this task will be the integration and extension of ‘Pheme’ within the OSCPSEP framework, a generic user analytics platform developed by ULANC as part of the EU funded Recall Project, initially developed to support on and offline interactions with public displays. We will extend ‘Pheme’ to support new interaction event types required to capture and store user interactions across both on and offline mobile and web-based public services. Such novel interaction analytics information will be applied to drive simplified user workflows between public services and provide insightful analytics about service use and performance.

  • Communication and Dissemination Plan

    Communication and Dissemination Plan (report, M2) This deliverable feeds into Task 5.1 Planning & Coordination of Communication and Dissemination Activities (Leader:Gov2u, Duration: M1-M36] Gov2u will create a Communication and Dissemination Plan (C&D Plan) that will provide the framework and structure of all project information, communication and publicity activities, defining communication goals, objectives and strategies with specified timelines, allocating responsibilities, providing a clear modus operandi, facilitating timely response to changed conditions and deviations from plans, establishing a basis for evaluation, identifying risks and taking remedial steps to solve problems. The plan will define a set of key performance indicators (KPIs), or success indicators, to enable an evaluation of the impact of communication and dissemination activities. AGE will support setting up the plan, provide some key dates for dissemination purposes, describe the activities around social media, highlight policy developments suitable to inform the project. A contact list will be created with the support of all partners in the first six months of the project. This list will contain the contact data separate for each type of target audience/external stakeholders of the project and will be updated every 6 months till the end of the project. Moreover, a list of potential conferences and journals where the project results can be published/presented will be created and continuously updated. The task will also ensure the smooth collaboration and coordination with other WPs related to the communication of their work and achievements, target group’s engagement, monitor the progress of the communication and dissemination activities of the project, report these activities and their results. Regular conference calls with project partners, e-mail correspondence, specific progress reporting are foreseen for the management of the WP5 activities. A Communication and Dissemination report together with an update of the C& D Plan will be delivered at M12 and M24. At the end of the project, a Final Communication and Dissemination Report will mirror all the communication and dissemination activities performed. It will report the evaluation of awareness raised through the communication means accordingly to the indicators established in the C&D Plan.

  • Interim Study on co-creation practices

    Interim report – Study on co-creation practice (Report, M12) This deliverable is linked to Task 1.2 Study on co-creation practices (Leader: ifib, Duration: M5-M26) This study will, again through qualitative methods, investigate how co-design and co-creation practice work including a variety of actors: senior citizens, formal and informal carers, civil servants, software programmers, open data providers. Methods will include cultural probes, (video) ethnography, interviews, focus groups and technology-in-use-observation (e.g. walking workshops, observing usage at home). This study will be informative to the development of a co-design and co-creation methodology, and form part of the final Mobile Age guidebook. • Study will be based on co-creation activities conducted in T3.2 – T3.5 • This study will also evaluate the transferability of the co-creation methods (transfer Bremen & South Lakeland to Zaragoza & Central Macedonia) and is considered when planning the engagement activities in T3.1 and for the study on transferability in T5.3.

  • First Communication and Dissemination Report

    Interim Communication and Dissemination Report (M12) This deliverable feeds into Task 5.2 Implementation of Communication and Dissemination Activities (Leader:Gov2u, Duration: M1-M36] This task will communicate the project's goals and achievements to the scientific and technical communities, policy makers and the general public. Gov2u will design a project logo and visual identity for the promotional material (brochures, press releases, newsletters etc.) and deliverables It will also launch and maintain a project website that has a structure suitable to include all current and progressively developed information regarding the project. The quarterly e-newsletter will be the main tool to disseminate updated information on the project work in progress. Particularly social media will be exploited to ensure that the project has a high profile via the Internet. Gov2u will be in charge of administrating online presence of the project and of creating press releases to be delivered to written press, radio, TV, websites and Internet. The contacts of relevant stakeholders collected by Gov2u with the support of project partners in an internal database, will enable sending regular news by e-mail on the project activities and events to the stakeholders. Different types of brochures will be created, printed and distributed by the members of the consortium within the workshops and conferences where they will participate. All partners will use their own communication channels in order to foster the visibility of the project and will implement dissemination activities targeting external audiences. Dissemination activities will involve the presentation of the project and its interim and final results during conferences and fairs, publication of scientific papers and distribution of policy briefs and research briefs. A special emphasis will be given to the clustering with the on-going projects and to influencing the standards concerning areas of interest of the project. AGE will help implementing the project webpage (providing content to the website), updating the social media channels the project will select as relevant (if relevant), search for external dissemination channels (e.g. joinup, Digital Agenda’s opportunities, EIP AHA opportunities), write articles for its own newsletter to be distributed to AGE members around Europe and summarize the dissemination efforts carried out
