Collaborative Research Projects

TOPIC LogoTOPIC: The Online Platform Platform for Informal Carers

Jun 2013 – Current

TOPIC is a European Research Project under the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme conducted by a consortium of 10 partners from both academia and industry in Austria, France and Germany. The consortium aims to support informal carers in their daily needs by providing an integrated set of online-shared spaces and services to support the physical and mental care ability of informal carers by enabling learning and orientation about care at home.

Fabiano’s contributions to the project are mainly in the identification and understanding of use contexts, the technical development of the CarePortifolio, the evaluation of the platform and the dissemination or the project results and its exploitation.

 

Nomadic Work in the Knowledge EconomyISSP Nomadic Work/Life in the Knowledge Economy Project

Sep 2008 – Ago 2012

The NWL was a four-year (2008-2012) Government of Ireland funded research project concerning mobility, technology, gender and work developed at the University of Limerick (UL). The project was a joint initiative between the Department of Sociology and the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS), funded by the Irish Social Science Platform (ISSP) via the Institute for the Study of Knowledge in Society (ISKS) and had as its main goals: (1) investigating technologically-mediated nomadic work practices in the Limerick region and the impacts of those practices in people’s lives; and (2) contributing towards the advancement of the methodologies that can be employed to do so.

Fabiano’s main responsibilities included:  (i) investigating issues on technologically-mediated nomadicity in academic settings; (ii) developing and maintaining the project website and (iii) organising project-related events.

Openmind LogoBrazilian Open Mind Common Sense

Nov 2004 – Ago 2008

The Brazilian Open Mind Common Sense was a joint initiative between the Advanced Interaction Laboratory (LIA) of the Federal University of São Carlos and the Media Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Fabian has contributed with the project by: (i) investigating how to use common sense statements collected from volunteers on the web to plan learning activities in health care; (ii) developing and maintaining the Brazilian Open Mind Common Sense website and (iii) developing procedures to automatically build the Brazilian Open Mind Common Sense semantic network from the natural language statements collected on the project web site.

TIDIA LogoFAPESP TIDIA–Ae Project

Mar 2004 – Ago 2008

TIDIA-Ae was a strand of the FAPESP Project TIDIA (Information Technology for the Development of the Advanced Internet) aiming at the development of tools for computer supported teaching and learning.

Fabiano has participated in different phases of the project by:  (i) planning and executing learning activities on the TIDIA-Ae Learning Management System; (ii) designing and developing e-learning tools to integrate the TIDIA-Ae Learning Management System and (iii) evaluating the usability of the system applications by means of Heuristic Evaluation and Usability Tests.
