VALUECARE – Value-based methodology for integrated care supported by ICT

VALUECARE has been funded by the H2020 programme of the European Commission, with the Grant Agreement No.875215.
Healthy ageing along with independent living have become fundamental challenges for Europe as all EU member states (and virtually every country in the world) are experiencing growth in the number and proportion of older persons in their population.
In this framework, Value-based health care s a delivery model in which providers, including hospitals and physicians, together with citizens/patients aim to reach the best citizen health outcomes.
VALUECARE’s vision of healthy ageing is that any older individual in society can live the best life possible according to what they value, facilitated by access to high quality, person-centred, evidence-based and affordable health and social care services, supported by strong and integrated health and social services. VALUECARE partners believe that taking an “enhanced value-based approach”, including not only health but also lifestyle and social care in the concept of value-based care.

FORDYS-VAR: Fostering inclusive learning for children with dyslexia in Europe by providing easy-to-use virtual and/or augmented reality tools and guidelines.

Project funded by the ERASMUS+ programme (European Commission and Spanish National Agency for the Internationalisation of Education, SEPIE)

The main aim of the FORDYS-VAR project is to contribute to the educational inclusion of school children with dyslexia using Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), improving access, participation and learning achievements of school children with this problem, reducing disparities in learning outcomes.

Consequently, the FORDYS-VAR project will contribute to enhancing the standards of quality in the educational field, promoting the academic success of those school children and the equal access and opportunities for all, increasing the skills and competencies of school teachers and education professionals.

SUSKIDS-Enabling professionals and families to transfer SUStainable Knowledge and skIlls to Down Syndrome individuals

Funded under ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for School Education, Project number 2018-1-ES01-KA201-050639.
SUSKIDS is an Erasmus+ Project with a duration of 36 months that arises from connecting the education and training of DS individuals in the field of sustainability and the need of raising awareness about new materials produced, through an approach based on the acquisition of new habits through game-based learning, social media, and self-engagement, offering an entertaining method to learn and to promote the autonomy and opportunities of inclusion.
Currently, there is a lack of coherent curriculums and inclusion measures aimed at people with Down Syndrome; who are often pushed to basic professional training programmes. SUSKIDS will design and develop innovative tools to help educators to transfer science concepts through recycling & sustainable construction contents to individuals with DS.

BOTSTEM: roBOTics and STEM education for children and primary schools

Funded under ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for School Education

BOTSTEM will implement inquiry teaching units with a robot-based approach, including code-learning, for enhancing the education in STEM fields. Recent research have demonstrated that early techno-scientific literacy in children as young as 4 years old could improve their long-term achievement in STEM fields and raise the scientific and technological vocations, specially for girls. Competencies acquired during childhood, including design thinking, inquiry, coding and robotics, are transferable to other areas. These skills are applicable to all areas during their whole academic and labour life.

APPCARE – Appropriate care paths for frail elderly patients. A comprehensive model

Funded under the European Union’s Health Programme (2014-2020). Contract 664689

The APPCARE project – which involves three countries: Italy, Spain and The Netherlands – seeks to analyse the ways to reduce hospital admissions, in particular the recurring ones. This can be done through a process of selection of the patients the very moment they enter the emergency room and through adequate local interventions, which could allow to face many health problems without hospitalizing, that always represents a stressful and risky situation for the elderly. One of the innovative aspects of the project is the analysis of the efficacy of the insertion of a Brief Intensive Observation in the services network, working as a filter for the hospital admission and as a link with the territory.

The APPCARE project is inspired by some fundamental principles:

  1. the importance of the “defragmentating care” of the treatments offered, so that the experts that operate in the different segments of the network could provide coordinated interventions;
  2. the need to adopt the multidimensional geriatric evaluation as a precondition of intervention: an important instrument to reveal the need, avoiding inadequacies due to the lacking knowledge in the realms of the intervention (from the biologic-clinic to the psychosocial ones);
  3. the need to create paths based on homogeneous data; therefore, the instruments of analysis should be similar in the different places where the elder patient resides and where treatments are offered;
  4. the attention both to the single frail person and the caregiver, whose role for the achievement of the health equilibrium is getting more and more essential, since the changing in the epidemiology and in the family structure;
  5. the need for an adequate training of who operates at different levels, in order to define and share methods of work and to decide the outcome to reach both at the level of the single segment and in general;
  6. the parameters of economic compatibility have always to be at the center of any intervention; in fact, an integrated therapy leads to saving money. However, the interventions should be analysed extensively in order to avoid the lowering of the qualitative level.
