In the past two-three years, MMCluster’s Coordination Office (MMOffice) has joined several international R&D projects either as contributing partner or as coordinator and project manager. Presently, MMOffice is coordinator and project manager of two European AAL projects, and consortial partner in a Leonardo da Vinci project.
Nostalgia Bits (NoBits) – AMBIENT ASSISTED LIVING JOINT PROGRAMME
Nostalgia Bits (NoBits) builds a platform for the elderly and their families for capturing, digitally archiving, and sharing their memories encapsulated in letters, newspaper clippings, postcards, photos, and other artefacts. The artefacts can be uploaded to a dedicated website, and thereby become both a means for connecting the elderly with their families and members of their own generation, and a significant resource for use by subsequent generations. The project is being implemented by an international consortium of 9 partners and is co-funded by an AAL grant jointly sponsored by the European Commission and the Hungarian government.
ElderHop – AMBIENT ASSISTED LIVING JOINT PROGRAMME
ElderHop will provide a complex solution to help elderly people keep up their daily activities outside of their homes, and in particular their active participation in one of the most important social activities they do on a daily basis – shopping. The project is being implemented by an international consortium of 7 partners and is co-funded by an AAL grant jointly sponsored by the European Commission and the Hungarian government.
InnoCrea – European Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme
The objective of InnoCrea is to produce a customizable modular training program for fostering creativity and innovation in business development through transferring the tried-and-tested methodology developed by the IESE Business School to Italy, Slovenia, and Hungary. The project is being implemented by an international consortium of 5 partners and is co-funded by the European Commission under the Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme.
