INDUCT stands for Interdisciplinary Network for Dementia Using Current Technology.
Funded through H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions – Innovative Training Networks, 2015 (grant agreement number 676265), INDUCT is aimed at developing a multi-disciplinary, inter-sectorial educational research framework for Europe to improve technology and care for people with dementia, and to provide the evidence to show how technology can improve the lives of people with dementia with the following objectives:
- to set up INDUCT the European multi-disciplinary, inter-sectorial educational research network;
- to provide a comprehensive training program for 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESR’s) to acquire a deep understanding of the nature of dementia and needs in relation to the use of technology and to equip them with the right skills needed for work in academia, industry or the health and social sector;
- to determine the practical, cognitive and social factors needed to make technology more useable for people with dementia;
- to evaluate the effectiveness of specific contemporary technology;
- to trace facilitators and barriers for implementation of technology in dementia care; and
- to disseminate the knowledge and evidence on how technology can be best applied and implemented in dementia care and can improve the lives of people with dementia.
