Project Objective: The main goal of E-NO FALLS thematic network is to integrate and bring together knowledge, experiences and best practices acquired at European and international level in the area of fall prevention, intervention and safety, with the aim of coordinating ongoing activities and creating the necessary conditions and consensus on action plans, standards and specifications in view to ensure the widest future replication and co-deployment of innovative solutions (with special emphasis on ICT-based ones). In this way, the E-NO FALLS thematic network will be a forum for all stakeholders within the value chain (such as industry, users organizations, informal and formal care providers, public authorities, investors, housing and insurance companies and service providers across Europe) to share knowledge, expertise, resources, best practice experiences and to build consensus to highlight the remaining obstacles to be overcome and to eventually provide guidance for ICT-enabled solutions and their roll-out. In order to cover all stakeholders’ interest and expectations, the best practices, guidelines and knowledge to be elicited and published by the project will address multiple dimensions (medical, scientific, operational, technological, socioeconomic…). This is why the dissemination plan of the project includes a variety of dissemination modalities that enable outreach to wide and diverse audiences (including care service providers, technical experts, application integrators, as well as citizens -with especial attention to the elderly community-). Thus, in this way E-NO FALLS pursues a holistic, multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder approach with strong user involvement.
