Digital Solutions for a Healthy, Active and Smart Life

The project denominated “DANTE: Digital Solutions for a Healthy, Active and Smart Life” has been presented under the EU call “DIGITAL-2021-EDIH-01 — European Digital Innovation Hubs” by the National Technological Cluster on “Smart Living Technologies”, as project coordinator.

The project will have a duration of 36 months from the 1st of October 2022 to the 30th of September 2025.

The overall budget is 5.673.119,67 €

DANTE is a cutting-edge project insofar as it focuses on supporting the digital transformation of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Organizations in the public sector, and professionals that operate in the domains of healthy and active ageing, ambient assisted living (AAL), and smart environments. The aim is to ensure that these players can respond to the current digital challenges. To foster the digital transformation of the European Economy the Digital Transformation Accelerator (DTA) will support effectively and efficiently the network of Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIHs).

The project will have relevant social impacts at different levels: on people, mainly the ones who have difficulties as the elderly and the individuals with disabilities try to increment their level of autonomy in daily life in terms of safety, avoiding loneliness, and support in case of physical and mental pathologies; on caregivers (professionals and not), providing them with digital information, abilities, tools to monitor continuously their patients to streamline the management of care processes; on social and health services, by reducing the costs and ensuring quality support for the elderly to foster their ability to remain active in the society; on the policies and Public Administration, in terms of supporting the connections between social and health policies (at regional, national, and international level) and the citizens, professionals, and companies operating in the area of healthy and active ageing, the technology-driven “smart” life.

The project DANTE has received funding from the European Union’s Digital Europe Programme (DIGITAL) 2021-2023
