WSN4QoL is an Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) Marie Curie Project that aims at bringing together experts from industry and academia, with the goal to design innovative Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technologies for a more efficient pervasive healthcare system.

The project is based on the collaboration of three partners, one University (Technical University of Catalonia-UPC-BarcelonaTECH), a private company specialized in healthcare provisioning (VIDAVO) and a spin-off company with expertise in testbed implementation of wireless protocols (WEST). WSN4QoL aims to build a bridge between academic and industrial research, by establishing a network of scientific collaboration between experienced and new researchers with advanced training opportunities.
