Activage is looking for participants to develop IoT solutions that promote active aging.

The project Activation It has opened its second call aimed at cities and regions of the European Union and associated countries to participate in this initiative that develops solutions on the Internet of Things (IoT) that promote active aging and the well-being of older people.

Activage, through the financing received by the European Commission, will provide up to 600,000 euros of financing to a maximum of three winning proposals. Solid plans are expected to be received from consortia of public and private entities, which include the point of view of both supply and demand, and technological providers. Additionally, they must offer an implementation program that replicates the services developed during the life of the project in their local environments.

Registration deadline

Cities and regions that want to become new deployment sites for these solutions can register for the call until June 21. On the Activage project page You can consult the steps to follow for registration.

In the first open call, the budget was allocated to incorporate mature IoT technology that complemented the solutions already available. A total of 10 projects were financed among the 85 proposals received, beginning their activity last February.

Since its launch in January 2017, the project has deployed services for active and healthy aging in nine European cities or regions, already involving almost 4,000 users, which will increase to 7,000 in the coming months.

Pilots running in Spain

This entire catalog of services has been integrated thanks to an interoperable ecosystem called Aiotes, which makes it possible to replicate the solutions available in other locations and integrate new functionalities in a simple way, ensuring the security and privacy of users.

Currently three of the nine Activage Project deployment sites are in Spain. The deployment in Galicia of the Activage Project is led by Televes, in collaboration with the Vodafone Spain Foundation, the Spanish Red Cross, Servizo Galego de Saúde (Sergas) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

In Madrid, the Polytechnic University of Madrid and Tecnalia are part of the Active Third Age project; while in Valencia it is done by Mysphera, Fundación Las Naves, Atenzia, Gesmed and ISI Benestar. Medtronic is the company in charge of coordinating the project and its open calls. Activage's operational and strategic coordination team is completed by the LST group of the Polytechnic University of Madrid and the Valencian company Mysphera.
