Council of Coaches

The Council of Coaches is an Innovation Action funded under the EU Horizon 2020 Framework. The project is running from September 2017 to August 2020 (3 years). In Council of Coaches, multiple virtual coaches form a personal council that supports the user in their health and well-being. Individual coaches have their own area of expertise, personality, and style of coaching. Join a council meeting! Give the council your thoughts, or listen and observe how the individual coaches exchange their views on your health behavior. Take what you’ve learned into your daily life, and if the need arises, contact any of the coaches anytime, anywhere.

For more information, visit the official Council of Coaches website.
