The present contribution illustrates the early stage activities of the project CONVERGENCE FLAG-ERA H2020. The project is aimed at improving the quality of healthcare during active life by preventing the development of diseases through earlier diagnosis of cardiovascular and/or neurodegenerative diseases, and meets the growing desire of consumers for a deeper awareness of their conditions; indeed, the extensive availability of smartphones and tablets and the technology therein incorporated enable the monitoring and transmission of vital parameters from the body of a patient to medical professionals. CONVERGENCE extends this concept, aiming to create a wireless and multifunctional wearable system, able to monitor, in addition to key parameters related to the individual physical condition (activity, core body temperature, electrolytes and biomarkers), even the chemical composition of the ambient air (NO x , CO x , particles). Herein is summarized the project activity, which involves ENEA group together with CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique, France) and UCL (Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium).
