- Care as medical practice: given to patients in hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centres and other medical facilities.
- Residential care: given to people in care institutions such as elderly people’s homes, nursing homes, special needs schools for children or adults.
- Family care: an investigation of how social robots can be implemented in the home, and form part of domestic life.
LIFEBOTS Exchange will focus on creating strong interdisciplinarity and cross-sectorial research and innovation. A knowledge hub for social robotics will facilitate the exchange of people/personnel interested in social robots.
EHTEL will work with the project coordinator NTNU, which is also closely associated with EHTEL member Norwegian Centre for eHealth Research. It will ensure that there is a solid exchange of information between the project and EHTEL’s members. People should start to understand better what social robots are and what benefits they can have for European society and European industry. EHTEL will aim to include this topic in upcoming events and conferences.
