A green light given to the i-evAALution piloting on the consortium meeting in Soest, Netherlands
An important milestone within the project i-evAALution was achieved at the 4th consortium meeting (AAL project) that took place on October 17 and 18, 2019 in Lyvore in Soest, the Netherlands. Consortium members have agreed that the i-evAALution bundle is ready to be tested by the primary end-users (people aged 65 and over) and the secondary end users (informal caregivers) in four test regions: Italy, Austria, Netherlands, Slovenia. Thus the implementation of a one-year large scale pilot test started in November.
The pilot in Slovenia is starting on November 25, 2019, with a workshop in Kranj. Older people and their informal carers who expressed the interest for the participation in the project will attend the workshop. The second workshop will take place at the Faculty of Social Sciences University of Ljubljana.
One of the Slovenian partners, Eurotronik, is responsible for the integration and development of i-evAALution bundle and for recruiting in Slovenia, while the implementation of the research, the evaluation and the analysis of the results will be conducted by the Centre for Social Informatics, under the supervision of Dr Vesna Dolničar, Assoc. Prof. The 9-partner meeting was attended by Dr Simona Hvalič Touzery, Assist. Prof. from the Centre for Social Informatics (CSI).
