PhD. Noemi Boqué is nutritionist and a researcher at the Eurecat’s Nutrition and Health Unit. She is the expert appointed by NESTORE partners to provide technologists with advices related to the development of coaching pathways in relation to foods, nutrition and health. She answers our questions.
Ensuring equal rights to participate in the digital transformations is essential when aiming at mainstreaming the benefits of digital products and services. With this goal in mind, the Italian Council Presidency launched the “Manifesto for a Digital Republic” with the objective to sustain actions for digital inclusion and counteract the digital divide.
Based on a participatory methodology developed in the UK, researchers helped to translate both users’ perspectives and to co-design activities for technologists with the development of co-design tools. ‘Exhibition in a box’ (Chamberlain & Craig) was the co-design tool utilised in the first phase of workshops in the UK to identify user needs and values.
Finding ways to design with people is at the heart of the research underpinning NESTORE. Since the project began, researchers in Lab4Living have been sharing their experience and expertise of co-design with colleagues on the project in Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.
Differences between men and women in body composition are well known: males typically have more muscle mass, more bone mass, and a lower percentage of body fat than women. But is that all? And how this influences NESTORE's recommendations for physical activities? Our partner CNR answers.
A coach can accompany you in different aspects of your life. The NESTORE companion will be no different as it will be able to advice users in various dimensions of human life from physical activity to social behaviours.
