The main target user group of OASIS is the elderly people who experience mild cognitive and physical impairments due to ageing. While in most cases these people are able to lead independent and active lives,  at the same time they are at the risk of exclusion due to the slight cognitive and physical deteriorations that they are experiencing, as well as the complexity and lack of utility, accessibility and usability of ICT.

To face up to these risks, the OASIS project was launched on January 2008, which is an Integrated Project with the scope to revolutionise the interoperability, quality, breadth and usability of services for all daily activities of older people.

More specifically, OASIS targeted the use of ICT and other key technologies to provide holistic services to older people to support their physical and psychological independence, stimulate their social or psychological engagement and foster their emotional well being. In doing so, OASIS thus addressed key areas of their activities encompassing: independent living and socialising, autonomous mobility, and flexible work-ability.
