visuAAL Marie Skłodowska – Curie ITN Network

visuAAL is a four-year (2020-2024) Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network, funded by the European Union, that aims at bridging the knowledge gap between users’ requirements and the appropriate and secure use of video-based AAL technologies to deliver effective and supportive care to older adults managing their health and wellbeing.

visuAAL will seek to increase awareness and understanding of the context-specific ethical, legal, privacy and societal issues necessary to implement visual system across hospital, home and community settings, in a manner that protects and reassures users; outputs will stimulate the development of a new research perspective for constructively addressing privacy-aware video-based working solutions for assisted living.

visuAAL will provide a transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral combination of training, non-academic placements, courses and workshops on scientific and complementary skills to 15 high achieving Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). These newly hired ESRs will contribute through their individual research projects to fulfil visuAAL's aims.

visuAAL brings together 5 universities:

  • Chair of Communication Science, Human-Computer Interaction Center, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
  • The Swedish Law and Informatics Research Institute (IRI), Stockholm University, Sweden
  • The Trinity Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
  • Computer Vision Lab, TU Wien, Austria
  • Department of Computing Technology, Universidad de Alicante, Spain (Project Coordinator)

This Consortium is complemented by 14 partner organizations from Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom; that will contribute to the research and training activities.
