Project number: 215754
Project acronym: OASIS
Project full title: OASIS - Open Architecture for Accessible Services Integration and Standardisation
Starting date: 1 January 2008 ended in December 2012.
Duration: 4 years
OASIS was a large scale integrated project partly financed by the European Commission (7th Framework Programme – ICT and Ageing).
The main target user group of OASIS were people who experience mild cognitive and physical impairments due to ageing. While in most cases these people are able to lead independent and active lives, at the same time they are at the risk of exclusion due to the slight cognitive and physical deteriorations that they are experiencing, as well as the complexity and lack of utility, accessibility and usability of ICT.
To face up to these risks, more specifically, OASIS aimed to provide holistic services to older people to support their physical and psychological independence, stimulate their social or psychological engagement and foster their emotional well being.
In doing so, OASIS thus addressed key areas of their activities encompassing: independent living and socialising, autonomous mobility, and flexible work-ability.
The OASIS Consortium was composed of 33 Partners from 11 countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom). Large Industries, SMEs, Universities, Research Centres, Non-Profit Organizations, Public Organizations and Healthcare Centres were represented.
These events were successfully concluded, and have been captured in below videos and pictures gallery.
