Technical Partner Project Meeting in Munich

The Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT) hosted on the 14th and 15th of January 2014 in Munich the technical project partner meeting to discuss first insights form the user requirements analysis and how to implement the different services of GeTVivid:

(1) a help exchange system that enables older adults to offer/ask for support for daily life activities to/from other older adults, who are living in geographical closeness; in case the informal care within a local entity (e.g., a residential building or home or a neighborhood) does not provide the help needed, the network can be extended incrementally from the direct surrounding to relatives (informal carers) and then to formal carers; this also includes a support of social integration and connecting generations for informal care by providing the possibility to display short messages;
(2) an access to service providers like meals on wheels, shopping assistance, house-keeping, taxi, medical help or assistance, etc. and
(3) support functions like reminders (e.g., for medication intake), news, weather, etc.

In the project meeting the following partner participated the ICT&S Center and the computer science department of the University of Salzburg (Austria), University of St. Gallen from Switzerland, Institut für Rundfunktechnik and Hövener & Trapp Evision GmbH from Germany, Ingenieria y Soluciones Informaticas del Sur, S.L. from Spain, and a representative of Verein für Menschen mit Körperbehinderung Nürnberg e.V. from Germany.
