The main objective of performing this event was to show the final results of the project to the ACTIVAGE community despite the sanitary crisis. The session was initially programmed through a presential event on May 2020 in an iconic place of the Madrid city centre. Considering the worldwide crisis, we worked hard for adapting this first approach to a dynamic and immersive digital experience with virtual and augmented reality technology.

The ACTIVAGE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE was celebrated on the 21st October 2021. This 5-hour event featured more than 30 participants from 7 different countries and was streamed through Zoom and YouTube for over 300 attendees.

The ACTIVAGE big day was distributed in the following four main tracks including external speakers:

  • The ACTIVAGE Experience of 8.000 senior people and caregivers, that are already enjoying active and healthy aging services attending their health and social needs.
  • The ACTIVAGE Values and results achieved in 12 European cities and regions after three yearlong piloting active ageing solutions and services.
  • The ACTIVAGE technology impact on the Internet of Things for health and social care that maximize security, privacy and ethical compliance.
  • The Kick-Off of ACTIVAGE.ORG organization that will scale up the ACTIVAGE Ecosystem throughout new European regions in the next 5 years

The consortium is very proud of this virtual session and the valuable content generated that constitutes the audio-visual portfolio and heritage of ACTIVAGE project.
