The first Pharaon Open Call will fund individual applications (e.g., not consortia) with mature digital solutions that are ready to be integrated into the Pharaon platforms. Solutions must be aligned to resolve the needs of one or more of the Pilot sites or provide specified additional requested functionality. All solutions must conform to at least one of the Pharaon Pilot Challenges (PCHs) applicable to the pilot site(s) the Third-party project seeks to address. The PCHs are:
The objectives of the pilot in Murcia are to improve telecare systems in the region, especially by empowering older adults to participate more directly in their care.
The objectives of the Andalusia pilot are focused on addressing unwanted loneliness and social isolation as well supporting wellbeing. Accordingly, the Andalusian pilot developed three use cases related to improving digital skills, community participation and cognitive stimulation.
The objectives of the Slovenian pilot are to reduce social isolation and loneliness, monitor and encourage physical activity, and to monitor and improve indoor environmental quality in retirement homes. Accordingly, the use cases addressed at the Slovenian pilot site focus on improving wellbeing, increasing social involvement and event participation, and supporting communication between peers and family.
The objectives of the Dutch pilot are to promote social cohesion and to reduce social isolation and loneliness by matching people and promoting healthy ageing through lifestyle coaching provided by technological solutions. Accordingly, the two main use cases being demonstrated are related to community building and providing tailored health advice to older adults.
The Italian pilot is split between two locations, Tuscany and Apulia. The primary objective of the Italian pilot is to improve quality of life for older adults living at home. In Tuscany, the priorities are to address socialisation and inclusion, as well as monitoring living conditions. In Apulia, the priorities are to provide physical and cognitive stimulation activities, while also providing solutions for socialisation and environmental monitoring.
The pilot in Portugal is divided between two locations, Amadora and Coimbra. The objectives of the Portuguese pilots are to develop and implement citizen focused solutions, integrated care and planning, integrated infrastructures and processes, and knowledge sharing. These pilots include a central focus on the relationship between the community, the environment, and the people living in them. Accordingly, the use cases addressed by the Pilot sites in Portugal are participation in community life, lifelong learning, and ensuring a safe and comfortable environment.
