The H2020 WellCo project (http://wellco-project.eu) helps and encourages the adoption of healthier behaviour choices to maintain or improve physical, cognitive, mental, and social well-being for individuals of senior age.

The Quality of Life technologies lab (https://www.qualityoflifetechnologies.com) where I conduct my PhD research owns the chronic disease risk awareness module in the WellCo software solution.
