The WeCareMore Centre is one of the most outstanding results of the ProACT project.John Dinsmore, Trinity College, Dublin
“WeCareMore” is the result of our thirty-years commitment in projects, initiatives and networks that aim at fostering real impact of technological progress on the quality of life of people with disabilities and older people.
The Centre manages projects that explore new solutions to overcome the barriers faced by people with disabilities and that increase their independence. Through the years increasingly older people have become an important target group. For them, technologies can support their active, healthy and safe ageing.
Many research projects have been implemented in the past, with excellent scientific results, but little impact. Often people and organisations weren’t ready to change their way of doing things, or too much innovation created alienation. All these obstacles can be overcome by careful (co-)design, (co-)production and implementation of solutions.
The time seems ripe to address the challenges of digitalisation in the person-centred and integrated care sector and to aim for significant results in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and quality of work and life of the main stakeholders.
AIAS Bologna onlus is a non-commercial player, but a non for profit NGO. Together with those that want to collaborate, we look for funds for the development, testing, implementation and management of innovative products and services.
“We Care”, like many outstanding professionals in the care sector do.
WeCare ”More” because we are convinced that the intelligent us of person-centred technology is an opportunity for the health and social care sector, as well as for the world of education.
There is a huge need for Knowhow Centres able to drive innovation in the sector.Luk Zelderloo, Secretary General of EASPD,
