Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: service robotics within assisted living environments.
GrowMeUp is an European project funded under the H2020 PHC-19-2014 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: service robotics within assisted living environments” call coordinated by the University of Coimbra and include a consortium formed by eight partners from 6 EU countries: Portugal, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Cyprus, Spain and France.
The GrowMeUp Project aims to provide an answer to the demographic change challenge, by providing an affordable service robotic system able to learn the older persons needs and habits over time and enhance (‘grow up’/scale up) its functionality to compensate for the elder’s degradation of abilities, to support, encourage and engage the older persons to stay longer active, independent and socially involved, in carrying out their daily life at home.
