InLife is a Horizon 2020 European Project which aims to prolong and support independent living of older adults with cognitive impairment, through interoperable, open, personalised and seamless ICT solutions.

The IN LIFE project will address the challenge of turning existing research efforts into reality for real people across Europe. Existing flexible ICT solutions could assist elderly users with cognitive impairment in organising, carrying out and completing everyday tasks and constitute essential factors for continuing to be and feel independent.

IN LIFE will offer all-around, personalised, multi-faceted existing ICT solutions and services addressing diverse daily activities (eating, physical activity, commuting, mental stimulation, communication, social interaction, etc.) to users with cognitive impairment living in their own home or in sheltered homes, as well as to their formal and informal carers.

The solutions will support:

  • home activities,
  • communication,
  • health maintenance,
  • travel,
  • mobility,
  • socialisation tasks,

with novel, scalable and viable business models, based on feedback from large-scale and multi-country pilot applications.

Sheffield is the only UK site for the IN LIFE and comprises the University of Sheffield working with Sheffcare, a local provider of housing and social care.
