A new European Commission study analyses the impact on society of EU-funded Research and Innovation in technology for active and healthy ageing. Which of the projects have had the most influence in Europe over the last 11 years? MARIO project is at the top 25 influential ICT for Active and Healthy Ageing projects.
“Providing adequate care to the elderly is essential to ensure that Europe’s senior citizens are able to spend their later years living a healthy, happy and independent life. But without support, many face loneliness, a lack of mobility and exercise, and forgetfulness on a daily basis. However, with the use of modern technology and particularly the development of robotic solutions, Europe’s elderly population can feel young again and lead a much safer and richer life.” European Commission 2017, Review MARIO project – Results in Brief
In Ortelio, we are happy to have been a partner in the MARIO project, and to see our work recognized by the community. We are also committed to further work on assisting Europe’s ageing population feeling as young and strong as possible, especially through our work on cloud robotics.
