PROGRESSIVE H2020 Project

PROGRESSIVE project is – Full title – Progressive Standards around ICT (information and communication Technologies) for active and Healthy Ageing is a consortium of ten partners, led by De Montfort University (UK). It is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) funded by the European Commission. Summary details of this CSA could be found here

The area of ICT and active and healthy ageing is vast, so the project focuses on 22 ‘fields’ that range from community safety to care homes, grouped into 4 main areas. Within these fields specific attention is being given to the way that standards help in the development of ‘age-friendly’ communities and facilities, and ‘smart homes’.
