Cáritas Coimbra attended the Pharaon Plenary Meeting in Malaga
The Pharaon Plenary Meeting took place in Malaga (Spain) from May 9th to 11th. This consortium meeting aimed to present the developments of the work carried out in recent months, reflect on the most emerging issues, and outline objectives and tasks for the coming months.
Cáritas Coimbra (CDC) was represented by two project managers from the Innovation Department, Elisabete Pitarma and Bruna Franceschini. They presented the developments of the Portuguese pilot, which is being implemented since July 2022, and held a workshop to deepen the ethical dialogue between the pilot partners from the Pharaon Project.
The partners of the Portuguese Pilot were represented by the CDC, Santa Casa da Misericórdia da Amadora, UCMARE, and UBI.
The Pharaon – Pilots for Healthy and Active Ageing project aims to develop integrated platforms that enable personalised and optimised health and social care, maintaining the dignity of older people and increasing their independence, security, capacities and stimulating their interest in natural urban areas close to their area of residence. In addition, it aims to encourage their active participation in the preservation of the environment. To this end, it proposes to integrate services, devices and digital tools in open platforms that can be readily implemented.
The Pharaon project is funded by the European Horizon 2020 Programme under grant agreement no. 857188.
