Open service platforms for active and healthy ageing (AHA) enable the connection of sensors and devices, ensuring seamless integration with the communication networks and provide resources and mechanisms for the management of these connected things and data. Platforms connect the individual user for example to health or social care provisions, to lifestyle and prevention applications and to home technology. They provide a one-stop shop and end-user service to upload information and download applications. Besides services and products, open service platforms deliver data analytics and visualisations. The overall aim of open service platforms in the AHA domain is to support independent living, healthy lifestyles and participation in society.
To achieve the goal of the PlatformUptake.eu project, that is to uptake and further upscale open service platforms in Europe, it is crucial for us to learn more about the wishes and demands of end-users, what hindrance and success factors for providers and developers are and which good practices in Europe exist. Therefore PlatformUptake.eu organises a range of online workshops with end-users and technology and service providers. Participants in the workshops will learn more about the usability of open service platforms, identified factors for success and lessons learned and methodology for upscaling. In interactive ways participants are invited to share their experiences and wishes.
