Managing work and family responsibilities is often difficult and impacts the health and well-being of employees, their families, and the workplace performance. A healthy workforce is a happier and more productive workforce.

Smart Reasoning Systems for Well-Being at Work and at Home


Keeping people healthy and at work has obvious benefits: protection against financial hardship, promoting a better quality of life and allowing people to make the most of their potential. Conversely, being out of work can exacerbate physical and mental health problems and increase the chance of social exclusion. The objective of this project is to develop user-centric sensing and reasoning techniques that help to improve physical well-being (mostly in a private context) and to improve well-working (in a work context). Of course physical well-being influences well-working and vice versa. Well-working could be defined as "being and feeling in control", with a positive impact on work efficiency and effectiveness, work pleasure, mental and physical health status.
