Welcome to our new Tech Care website and blog!
After some months of development, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new website!
The Erasmus + TechCare Project is a 36 months project running from October 2017 to September 2020. The project puts together educational institutions and organizations with the purpose of strengthening the ties between technology advancements, education and caregivers. The project focuses on training formal and informal caregivers about the ethical and practical challenges that determine the acceptability of Assisted Living Technologies (ALTs) into home and community care.
Among the expected results of the project, the project will deliver an online platform that will help caregivers select and evaluate ALTs.
The TechCare Project is coordinated by Wohlfahrtswerk Stuttgart (Germany) and includes the participation of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC, Spain), Frontida Z Patras (Greece), the Multimedia Communications Lab of the Technische Universität Darmstadt (KOM, Germany) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB, Belgium).
In this website we will share information about the development of our project. We will update you about the research results and hopefully provide you with outputs and useful knowledge, so stay tuned and check the TechCare website for updates!
