Results of Horizon 2020 EU-Japan co-funded call SC1-PM-14-2016 (NICT)

The ACCRA project was selected for Horizon 2020 SC1-PM-14-2016 call (EU-Japan cooperation on Novel ICT Robotics based solutions for active and healthy ageing at home or in care facilities) funded by Horizon 2020 and NICT.


ACCRA Project

The mission of ACCRA is to enable the development of advanced ICT Robotics based solutions for extending active and healthy ageing in daily life by defining, developing and demonstrating an agile co-creation development process. To this end, a four-step methodology (need study, co-creation, experimentation, sustainability analysis) will be defined and applied in three applications (support for walking, housework, conversation rehabilitation) and assessed in France, Italy, Netherlands and Japan.

The three applications will be based on a FIWARE platform integrating a number of enablers including features of universAAL and supporting two robotics solutions, Astro (Robot) and Buddy (Robot companion). The MAST impact assessment framework will be used integrating the following dimensions: user perceptions, user outcomes, ELSI, economic aspects, technical aspects, organisational aspects.
