In 2018 VITECO enjoys Natiflife project funded by the European Programme Interreg Europe Italy-Malta. The common challenge of the two Regions (Sicily-Malta) tackled by this project is to provide effective technological solutions to the growing needs of independency and autonomy of elderly and people with impairments.
The main project objective is the development of an innovative framework of assistive technology by a joint action between research, industrial, institutional and social sectors. The project intends to provide end-users with autonomy, thus enabling dehospitalization, staying in places of origin and avoiding to break the bonds with families. This reduces costs to the National Health System.
The NATIFLife project produces the following main outputs:
VITECO develops an informative portal to inform citizens about the activities carried out by the project and about the main objectives pursued and a software suitable for assistive and innovative technologies.
