UNIVERSIDAD POLITÉCNICA DE MADRID

LifeSTech research group, will bring to the project a multidisciplinary team of researchers which main skills include consultancy, design, development and deployment of AHA and e-Health IoT enabled solutions including reliable and effective telehealth services, personal systems for self-management of health and integrated regional health information systems. Other group skills include evaluation of ICT applied to AHA, Health Technology Assessment, eAccessibility, Ambient Intelligence, Intelligent Transport Systems, GDPR compliance, Technological Architectures, Business Process Engineering, and System Development and Integration. For more than 20 years, LifeStech is one of the leading European investigation centers undertaking research of eHealth systems and solutions. Its key strength is a team with a renowned track record of advanced research, going from eHealth RTD roadmaps to specific solutions for IoT based new models of AHA and healthcare services. LifeSTech will also bring its knowledge and experience in European R&D projects related to Accessibility AEGIS (FP7), VERITAS (FP7), and Active and Healthy Ageing: PERSONA (FP6-AAL), ASK-IT (FP6), OASIS (FP7), REMOTE (AAL programme), UNIVERSAAL (FP7) and ReAAL (CIP-FP7), designing, developing and evaluating ICT architectures, telecare, health monitoring and assistive solutions in order to support the aged people, foster their independent living and delay their usual cognitive and physical decline. Moreover, the group has coordinated the IN LIFE project (H2020) a large pilot project that has demonstrated the use of different ICT technologies in the intervention of elderly people with mild cognitive impairments, and is the Technical Manager of ACTIVAGE project (H2020), a Large Scale Pilot project that will demonstrate the use of IoT for smart living and ageing well. Finally, the group was participating in the City4Age (H2020) and SMART4MD (H2020) both developing and evaluating ICT technologies for the ageing well of the European population in smart cities.

UPM’s main role will be the integration of the different modules and validation of the solution developed within the project. The validation will be both technical, in the living lab environment, and user-centered, within the pilot trials framework. UPM will actively contribute to the realisation of the worker’s dashboard and will be involved in the dissemination activities (events planning etc.).
