The winning project will conduct a real pilot of its solution which will receive funding of up to €50,000 from Ibernex.

The challenge attracted entries from 50 startups, SMEs, technological centres and entrepreneurs, of which 39 were from Spain and 11 were international. During the evaluation process, the nine most innovative projects took part in a virtual collaboration and co-creation journey coordinated by the Aragón Open Future team. In conjunction with Ibernex, they developed their proposals and had the opportunity to interconnect technologies and raise the visibility of their companies among their rest of their travelling companions.

Essence SmartCare España, the winner of this challenge, develops innovative advanced telecare solutions aimed at suppliers of services involved in caring for seniors. Its solution, based on predictive learning algorithms and artificial intelligence, is capable of evolving in accordance with users' needs and monitoring their activity through programmed rules or automatic learning of their habits.

This technology helps seniors, people with disabilities and people with chronic diseases in their daily lives and makes it possible to detect any deterioration in their health in the early stages.
