Common challenge

The first challenge is to develop, through the use of information and communication technologies, innovative products and services that ensure three criteria are met: usability by a large number of end-users, acceptance and long term use.
The second challenge is to demonstrate the potential of the products and facilitate their uptake on the market.
Both challenges will be addressed using a bottom-up approach, called co-production where the active participation of end-users (disabled/elderly people, caregivers), health professionals, researchers and companies is essential.
