LifeChamps aims at shifting the discrimination barrier for older cancer patients through the integration of different clinical and digital tools such as PROMs, PREMs, symptomatic and geriatric measures, mHealth and wearables, machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms for Big Data. As its end result, Lifechamps will develop a novel, sophisticated and multifaceted clinical decision support tool for a comprehensive geriatric assessment.

SHAPES (Smart and Healthy Ageing through People Engaging in Supportive Systems) is a project funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme and involves 36 partners from 14 countries: Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom.

Due to the increased incidence, prevalence and mortality of chronic diseases and multimorbidity, the need of palliative care (PC) resources is a challenge for health and social care systems. However, currently, access to PC remains inconsistent and, due to the ageing population, it is expected an increase in the rate of people requiring this kind of care over the next 25 years.

In spite of the continuous development of new drugs that target molecular mechanisms
responsible for generating epileptic seizures, approximately 25% of the patients with epilepsy are
proven medically resistant. These patients should be evaluated for surgery to remove the area
responsible for generating the attacks referred to as the epileptogenic zone (EZ). Surgical
outcomes strongly depend on the accuracy of the recognition of the EZ, which is currently
identified using a potential range of diagnostic tests. In such cases, long-term intracranial

SISCODE is a three-year project aiming to understand the co-creation phenomenon that is flourishing in Europe (in fab labs, living labs, social innovations, smart cities, communities and regions) and to analyse the context and conditions that support its effective introduction, scalability and replication. Eventually this will help bridge the gap between the process of co-constructing policies and their implementation. Co-creation will be analysed in particular in the light of Responsible Research and Innovation and Science, technology and innovation policies.
