Open Call – PHARAON project


The Pilots for Healthy and Active Ageing (Pharaon) is a Horizon 2020 project to improve the dignity, independence, and wellbeing of older adults by providing enhanced smart and active living solutions. The project has created a set of customizable and interoperable platforms that provide advanced services, devices, robotics, IoT tools, artificial intelligence, data management, cloud computing, smart wearables, and analytics. The Pharaon platforms are built on mature state-of-the-art open platforms and already integrate existing technologies. The purpose of this call is to strengthen the open platforms by filling ecosystem needs and adding new technologies to support older adults as well as their formal and informal caregivers.


Relevant information about the Call:

The project is focused on existing and mature technologies that can be modified, integrated, and demonstrated during the piloting phase of the project. There are 6 pilots spread across 5 countries and each pilot has different use cases and needs, providing an opportunity to show the strength of the Pharaon platforms under real and varying conditions. The Pharaon consortium has created the initial platforms and provides a set of solutions that meet the basic needs of each pilot site.


This open call is an opportunity for other solution providers to contribute their technologies to the project, demonstrating that their solutions are compatible with the Pharaon open platform and supporting the ongoing development and refinement of the overall Pharaon ecosystem.
