ACROSSING is an innovative research training network funded by the EU H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme which aims to change the way millions of the older people in Europe and around the world live, are cared, and manage their conditions and maintain wellbeing.
ACROSSING will develop advanced technologies and platform for smarter assisted living, making a critical contribution towards an open smart home (SH) technology infrastructure by interlinking disciplines from sensing technologies, context inferences and interaction, to service infrastructures, and considering key principles of social impact, ethics, security and privacy. ACROSSING addresses the following targets.
Scientific target: Develop advanced technologies and toolsets for SH-based assisted living, including four specialised technology infrastructures, a shared experiment data repository, and guidelines for SH application development based on the best-practice demonstrators.
Training target: Educate 15 ESRs in multi-disciplinary, transferable skills and wider perspective to become the SH experts, nurture the ESRs’ thinking to become future research leaders in SH-based assisted living, and create networks and common ground for future collaborations among partners.
Societal target: Increase European innovation capacity and competitiveness in SH technology through the collaboration of industry, academia, and users by integrating totally four ICT-driven application demonstrators as best-practice examples for the envisioned open SH technology infrastructure.
