ICT for Health and Well-being

ICT technologies have become even more pervasive in our everyday life and they represent a great opportunity to improve our Quality of Life (QoL) and the general well-being conditions of our society. Supporting people with ICT based solutions, following a user-centric approach, improves people empowerment, giving them the chance to live uncompromised, comfortable, safe, and active (especially for elderly) and to assume more sustainable behavior that can influence both per personal and collective well-being conditions.

H2020 EU research program identifies Health and Well-being Research and Innovation in ICT as one of the most important Societal Challenges, aimed at empowering citizens for an e-Healthy future.

My current research activity focuses on this theme, by exploiting previous research results on mobile and pervasive computing to define novel and efficient solutions for health and well-being of both healthy people and patients.
