I wonder if we have got our 13 million Euros worth?

I have just discovered another EU funded venture aiming to help older people – this one is called Netcarity. Totally new to me although it appears to have been going for the past 3 years.

The cynic in me looks at this type of venture and thinks that it is a way of keeping a lot of academics gainfully employed but will deliver little, other than lots of conference speeches and journal papers. Perhaps somebody can put me straight and explain what products have/will result from all of this expenditure. Dick Stroud

I agree with you. This looks like CSI takes on aging. Nothing here that we don't already have with standard technologies. Can you say boondogle?
