2014-03-19 GiraffPlus on ProFouND - EIP-AHA Meeting

On March 12th-13th, Carlos Gutiérrez and Ana I. Pérez attended the ProFouND*- EIP-AHA** member meeting in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Spain). The ProFouND project is an EU funded Thematic Network focusing on falls prevention involving 21 partners from 12 different EU countries. ProFouND’s objective is to embed evidence based fall prevention programs for elderly people at risk of falls, by using novel ICT and effective training programs in at least 10 countries/15 regions by 2015 to facilitate widespread implementation. The GiraffPlus project is an associated member of the network since 2013. Carlos and Ana presented the project and made contact with some ProFouND and EIP-AHA partners which hopefully can lead to future collaborations.
