Project ValueCare


Active, autonomous and healthy aging is one of the main challenges arising from Europe’s demographic evolution. The VALUECARE project intends to create an efficient model of integrated social and health care, aimed at improving the quality of life of older people (and their families) affected by cognitive decline, frailty, vulnerability conditions or multiple comorbidities. In this sense, it aims to contribute to the sustainability of the European social and health systems, as well as to the satisfaction and well-being of professionals working in these areas. This vision of integrated care, based on the added value generated by it, will be applied in a robust, secure and widely expandable digital solution, which will be tested and evaluated through 7 large-scale pilots in Europe (Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain, Croatia, Netherlands, Ireland), based on a methodology developed by the project partners, in collaboration with the project’s end users.

In short, VALUECARE proposes to achieve greater efficiency in the use of resources and in the coordination of social and health care, in a context that generates confidence both in users and in policy makers, when it comes to the access, protection, sharing and standardization of personal data, with replication potential in the EU.


In ValueCare, CDC will lead the task of establishing ethical protocols, according to the previously defined ethical plan. Through the project’s Ethics Committee, the guidelines will be provided to the consortium partners, as well as the documents to be used in activities involving external participants, throughout the project’s implementation, which will then be duly translated and adapted to the respective national each one.
