Role: Large Scale Pilot, Open Call
GATEKEEPER is one of the largest funded projects by the H2020 EU Programme.
It's a European Multi Centric Large-Scale Pilot on Smart Living Environments. The main objective is enabling the creation of a platform that connects healthcare providers, businesses, entrepreneurs, and elderly citizens and the communities they live in, in order to originate an open, trust-based arena for matching ideas, technologies, user needs and processes, aimed at ensuring healthier independent lives for the ageing populations.
The scope of GATEKEEPER is the application of advanced Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) to tackle the challenge of improving the quality of life of citizens while demonstrating its significant efficiency gains in health and care delivery across Europe
