The work plan is organized in 5 work packages. Whereby WP1 and WP5 are accompanying the workplan over the whole period, WP2, WP3 and WP4 are performed in sequential order with a certain overlap.

This is due to the independence of certain tasks of sequencing work packages which can start in parallel. Between WP2 and WP3 a feedback loop will be established.


WP 1

MAR 22 - AUG 24

  • Handle strategic and everyday management of the project, including financial, non-technical and administrative coordination among all activities involved in the project
  • Implement and maintain seamless communication flow between the Consortium members, the AAL CMU and national funding organizations
  • Guarantee appropriate quality and timely delivery of reports, deliverables, and project outcomes
  • Ensure that all user involvement activities fulfil highest ethical standards

WP 2

MAR 22 - FEB 23

  • Collection and analysing requirements as well as needs for the target group
  • Co-design and iterative development to ensure wearability, agency and ethical design and personalization of training content
  • Extensive involvement of primary and secondary end-users
  • Develop the concept for the user interface and interaction and guidelines for the implementation following a user-centred approach
  • Perform a range of lab trials in order to evaluate and further develop the system and services

WP 3

MAY 22 - AUG 24

  • Development of the overall solution
  • Integration of the existing frameworks into the overall solution
  • Creation of standardized interfaces

WP 4

OCT 22 - AUG 24

The overall objective is the empirical evaluation of the developed system in the field at two different stages in the development process. This involves assessing the impact of the developed system collecting user feedback and analysing how the system is received and used by study participants in the field. Accordingly, two field trials will be implemented following a mixed methods approach. The practical implementation of the two field trials includes the following aspects:

  • Operationalization of the evaluation objectives including the preparation of instruments and tools
  • Planning and implementation of procedures and mechanisms to support the study participants
  • Recruitment of participants
  • Conduction of the trials
  • Quantitative and qualitative analysis of data collected in the trials

WP 5

MAR 22 - AUG 24

  • Exploitation and business plan development
  • Scientific exploitation
  • Sustainability concept

The DemiCare project has been funded by the Active and Assisted Living programme. AAL is a European programme funding innovation that keeps people connected, healthy, active and happy into their old age.

AAL supports the development of products and services that make a real difference to people’s lives - for those facing some of the challenges of ageing and for those who care for older people if they need help.

The project has an overall budget of 2.029.091,76 €, to which the AAL will contribute with 1.477.535,07 €
