The Ecosystem “Rheinland” will present one of the use cases from the SHAPES H2020 project. With the title “Direct Digital interactions with older people: what are the conditions for upscaling in a rural area?”, the presentation will focus on considerations with respect to the integration of end-users’ needs, the impact achieved during the large-scale pilot and the conditions for SHAPES to be integrated into the local systems.
The session will showcase use cases from large scale pilots in Europe with a specific focus on active ageing and with a holistic approach to health.
But there is more: many of those projects have also integrated “scalability by design”; they indeed launched “open calls” to select mature solutions available on the shelf to connect with the platform they created. The session will therefore be highly illustrative and will demonstrate how existing mature solutions can be successfully integrated in collaborative platforms and support advanced use cases.
Finally specific attention will be given to the factors which influence users’ adoption and upscaling.
A very concrete and informative session which will be of high interest for both the demand and the supply sides, it will be chaired by the project GATEKEEPER with inputs from the SHAPES, PhaRAON, SMARTBEAR and ADLIFE projects. Since 2019, these EU-funded projects and 9 others have been actively collaborating together and exchanging resources and best practices in a continuous way.
