Open Evidence will take part in the GATEKEEPER-project, that focuses on smart living homes - whole interventions demonstrator for people at health and social risks, a new Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action for the European Commission, whereby the Monitoring and Assessment Framework for the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (MAFEIP) will be a central element of the project. The project will be conducted with 43 partners across Europe, collaborating with healthcare technology companies, research institutes and universities, healthcare providers and European and international networks on technological innovation.
The main objective of the project is enabling the creation of a platform that connects healthcare providers, businesses, entrepreneurs, and elderly citizens and the communities they live in, in order to originate an open, trust-based arena for matching ideas, technologies, user needs and processes, aimed at ensuring healthier independent lives for the ageing populations. GATEKEEPER will create combined digital solutions for personalized early detection and interventions and will demonstrate its value by scaling up, during a 42-months work plan, towards the deployment of solutions that will involve c.a. 40.000 elderly citizens, supply and demand side (authorities, institutions, companies, associations, academies) in 8 regional communities, from 7 EU member states.
With the help of Open Evidence, MAFEIP will be used to support the pilot-sites in developing the interventions and to conduct an impact assessment on the socio-economic indicators derived from the use of the platform.
