Advanced TeChnologies and PlatfoRm fOr Smarter ASsisted LivING

ACROSSING is an innovative research training network funded by the EU H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions programme which aims to change the way millions of the older people in Europe live and maintain wellbeing. The project aims to make a critical contribution towards an open smart home technology infrastructure by interlinking disciplines from sensing technologies, context inferences and interaction and considering key principles of social impact, ethics, security and privacy.

Scientific target:

Develop technologies for smart-home based assisted living, including 4 specialised technology infrastructures, a shared experiment data repository and guidelines for smart home development based on best-practice demonstrators.

Training target:

Educate 15 ESRs in multi-disciplinary, transferable skills to become future research leaders in assisted living and create networks for future collaborations among partners.

Social target:

Increase European innovation capacity and competitiveness in smart home technology through the collaboration of industry and academia by integrating 4 ICT-driven application demonstrators as best-practice examples for the envisioned open SH technology infrastructure.
