project acronym: MICHELANGELO

project fullname: New technology to help children with Autism

lifetime: 2012-2015

sector: eHealth and Ambient Assisted Living

programme: 7th Framework Programme for Research


email[email protected]

about: MICHELANGELO intends to bring the assessment and the therapy of the autism out of the clinical environment and develop a patient-centric home- based intervention requiring a minimal human involvement and therefore extremely cost effective.

The project exploits ICT and other technologies in assessing and treating the Austistic Spectrum Disorder in children in a more “natural” home environment where non-obtrusive techniques will be used.

At the same time the proposed method aims at enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment through its “intensiveness” and “personalization” matching the individual characteristics of the autistic children.

MICHELANGELO project is expected to have impacts from the medical, social and economic perspectives. The results of its research work will be validated through an exploratory study with autistic children in France and in Italy.

acrosslimits role: We are the workpackage leader for the horizontal actions of dissemination, exploitation and ethics. We also have a strong role in the creation of the plan for integration and testing of the solution.

About: The VOWEL project started in November, 2004 proposing to design an e-learning solution, to be tested on several sites in Europe with the support of technical players and European vocational training players, particularly in English, French and Spanish. It’s aim was to develop the handling of professional situations in those languages, to come up with a deployment methodology and to ensure its promotion throughout Europe. The VOWEL project provided access to a newer, thorough, operational and interactive language-training portal that provided reliable operation and integrated all synchronous and asynchronous on-line services.
