ACROSSING is a EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network in which 15 research projects investigate developing new technologies for use in smart homes.
Smart homes provide a promising approach to assisted living for the ageing population. Yet it still remains a challenge to develop and deploy such solutions in a large scale due to the lack of an easy-to-use technology infrastructure and application exemplars. This problem arises from the nature of the field: multidisciplinary, diverse in its applications, and with multiple stakeholders.
ACROSSING addresses this problem by implementing a multidisciplinary cross-sector pan-European training network to knock down barriers between disciplines.
The partners will develop flexible, interoperable underlying technologies which are then applied to and evaluated in multiple real application scenarios, leading to specialized technology infrastructures and best-practice application demonstrators.
