Connecting people in many innovative ways
Eerste Verdieping Internet Communities (EVIC) is a small business organisation that focusses on the use of Internet in the field of housing, care and wellbeing. Our mission is to provide optimum usable and accessible Internet environments for people and organizations, in which they are able to fulfil their potential to collaborate and organize their local communities.
Translated to the focus of housing, care and welbeing, this means realizing online service platforms on which people and organizations can share information, communicate and can rely on each others services as well as on professional services connected to the platform.
Our involvement goes beyond the usual role of supplier - not technology but the initiation of the social process is paramount in our approach. The process of design and configuration runs parallel to the development process, in close cooperation with local organizations and institutions, their clients and end-users.
Some of our projects
SOCIALCARE aims to support and promote these social innovation processes of citizen empowerment by bringing innovative technological solutions together and providing for a toolkit with best practices and blue prints for implementation. The project will test and pilot the social and technological solutions in two pilot countries, adapting them to country specific situations and areas. The result will be a set of guidelines, best practices and technological tools for a sustainable social care network by empowered citizens in local communities that supports older people.
The project runs from May 2015 until january 2018 and is funded as part of the AAL programme (Active and Assisted Living Programme), Call 2014 ‘Care for the Future' by the European Commission and the National Funding Agencies of the partners in the consortium.
MI-Tale aims to develop an interactive, web-based 2D game where all the crucial stages of the personal history of people with dementia can be played through. It will run on browser-enabled devices such as notebooks or tablets. The memories of the associated personal experiences and behavioural values are recorded in order to be able to access them in later stages of the disease. The resulting assignment of memories in the form of such a game has many advantages for both people with dementia and their professional and informal care environment.
The project runs from May 2017 until May 2018 and is funded as part of the AAL programme (Active and Assisted Living Programme), Call 2016 ‘Living well with Dementia' by the European Commission and the National Funding Agencies of the partners in the consortium.
