The ESSENCE project consortium has gathered in Ljubljana, Slovenia for the final period of the project.

Essence Project’s partners met in Ljubljana, Slovenia to discuss some relevant apects about the final period of the project, that it is due to finish in Appril 2023.

In this meeting, all aspects related to the project’s implementation (pilot in children and adults, technical aspects, data collection, dissemination and communication) have been discussed. Also, the partners have faced the closure of the project.

ESSENCE builds upon the results of MoveCare H2020 and adopts an iterative optimization process between two pillars – technology transfer of a subset of successful modules and feedback received from testing on target users – with the final target of achieving CE mark and promptly entering the mark
The ESSENCE system consists of three main components:
– the Community-Based Activity Center (CBAC), a holistic platform, based on virtual rooms, providing a series of diverse activities with declared recreational, socialization, educational, and assistive purposes;
– the Monitoring Module, that gathers heterogeneous information from the activities mediated by the CBAC, a smart ink pen, and diverse applications to extract cognitive, physical, and emotion-related indicators. AI is exploited to provide personalized feedback, and alerts for deviations from physiological behaviors;
– the ESSENCE Manager, that acts as the system control unit to manage user profiling, system configuration, possible system malfunctioning, and delivery of notifications, alerts, or feedback.
Through ESSENCE, a multi-level user empowerment will be promoted both by: (i) delivering empathic feedback aimed at maximizing engagement and relieving stress; (ii) producing alerts on potential risks to family members and health and education professionals aimed at fostering early detection of possible weaknesses and anticipation of care.
