Supporting Active Ageing through Multimodal coaching


Quality Assurance Plan and Guidelines

Plan, elaborated in consultation with BILSP and partners. This plan will define a framework for the internal and external management reviews.

Review of Existing Longitudinal Population Data Sets

A research report suitable for publication as a journal article, reviewing data sets and data banks that have been used in longitudinal studies older persons cohorts to identify potential gaps in the current evidence.

SAAM Ethics Review Codex, Informed Consent Procedures and Templates

Review of legal regulations, ethical standards, guidelines and best practices in relation to the interactions with the experimental and pilot users of the SAAM system. The deliverable includes the needed templates for informed consent.

VOIP Telephony and Messaging Architectures Specification

Written Report Describing the Architectures [M12, updated M34]

Quality Assurance Periodic and Final Reports

Reports compiling partners' internal monitoring and assessment of the quality of the project implementation, in relation to stated objectives, efficiency, relevance and impact. Periodic Report at M18, Final report at M36

System Technical Specifications

A report defining the interoperability principles of the system’s underlying software/ hardware components, APIs, communication protocols and data exchange formats.
