2 SmartSociety proposals win FETLaunchpad innovation funds

Two proposals originating from our project have successfully acquired innovation funds from FETLaunchpad! SmartNurse and WhiteRabbit were among the 16 proposals accepted from the very first Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Innovation Launchpad call, and invited to grant agreement preparation.

Brief descriptions of the projects follow:

SmartNurse is a FETLaunchpad winning proposal originated in the SmartSociety project that aims at developing (a) smart teaching assistant(s) for individualised training of student nurses. Such systems will offer information on demand (e.g. instant feedback, regulations or quick-check information, hints, …), and also provide feedback if the activities performed by the trainee during training sessions are not performed to required training goals. This application will allow student nurses to learn faster and get specific individual support.

WhiteRabbit is a FETLaunchpad winning proposal originated in the SmartSociety project that aims at developing a off-the-shelf software platform able to become a ‘privacy accountant’ that, with minimal configuration and investment, will allow to extract value from data while keeping its subjects in the loop and also complying with upcoming regulations. Such platform will allow companies to manage personal data in a quicker, less expensive and more end-user driven way.
