A multi-stakeholder co-creation platform for better access to long-term care services


Data Sources Classification and semantic interoperability

Within this task different Data Sources will be identified on each pilot sites and classified according to the SoCaTel business requirement. Standards of data models in the health care sector will be investigated in order to create a unified and scalable data model allowing to link businesses and the different social care policies and to welcome any new data sets for reuse by services and statistical analysis. The work will be carried out in three stages : Stage 1: Early indications show that the data sources will be classified based on the below categories: • Governmental Data Sources – This category constitutes the listing of government supported social and welfare services and their localisation properties (Country, Area, Municipality etc.) as well as the intended target audience (targeted social groups i.e. all older people, older people with disabilities etc.). Available statistical data will be associated with each listing indicating their use (or lack thereof), public response to each service and o

Communication plan

Description of the elements that will be used by the consortium in the pre-pilot and pilot execution phases. It is intended to gain stakeholders mobilisation in those phases. It will include goals of the plan, target audiences, resources and budget dedicated, key messages to be delivered and the expected impact.

Policy briefs

Policy briefs to make sure all policy is updated and any inclusion necessary to be added. Drawing up policy recommendations for the development of co-creation and the related digitalization in services for older people.

Context Aware Recommendation Engine

The necessary infrastructure to analyse the various data sources as well as the interfaces to these data sources will be constructed. All necessary analytical components with regards to statistics will also be put in place.

Project website and graphical image

Project website, image and artefacts : we will set up and maintain the project internal and external web portal. The website will be made available on M3 and will be updated regularly with news of the project, its progress and achievements. Assets which can be used for dissemination and communication will be produced, including project leaflet, brochure, flyer, poster/banner and standard slide show presentations of various lengths, kept up to date during the project lifetime where applicable. Materials will be available in English, Spanish, Finish and Hungarian.

Community Outreach events

To ensure long-term impact of SoCaTel’s outcomes, it is crucial that the young generation of social workers is educated about co-creation practices and their benefits. As such, under the leadership of FONTYS, a SoCaTel MOOC will be prepared in multiple languages and shared via the European MOOC repository so as to promote the incorporation of co-creation content in social work studies.This platform ( is part of the Opening up Education initiative to provide a single gateway to European OER (open education resources). The first adopters will be the universities participating in the project: URV, FONTYS, UTA, GFC and TCD. These 5 higher education institutes are planning to use the MOOC’s content and teaching resources in undergraduate and graduate courses.
