APOLLON (Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in Networks)
Description and scope
APOLLON (Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in Networks) is a European project to demonstrate the positive impact of Living Lab networks in specific domains by setting up an advanced pilot project comprising 4 thematic experiments: homecare; energy efficiency; manufacturing; and e-participation. In these experiments, the SMEs involved will be able to take part in other cross-border experiences in Living Labs outside their local market, and will be supported by major corporations, university centres and other interest groups.
The main objectives of this project are:
- To conduct and evaluate living lab pilots.
- To develop harmonised methodologies and tools for cross-border living lab projects.
- To establish domain-specific and sustainable European living labs.
The participation of Living Lab Salud Andalucía in the project consists of the e-health experiment, which is in turn divided into two parts:
- A pilot based on the use of a teleassistance platform by dependent people, which will be transferred from the Homecare Living Lab in Belgium to the Finish Herttoniemi Living Lab.
- A second pilot project, “The Careless Project”, aimed at analysing how a network of sensors and advanced computational intelligence techniques can be used to measure the daily activities of elderly or ill people by providing them with remote monitoring of their state of health. This experience will be transferred to the LLSA from the Amsterdam Living Lab in Holland.
- 27 European partners and another 57 associated partners
