    An increasing number of mobile devices, sensors and consumer electronics are equipped with (wireless) networking capabilities. These devices communicate via different types of networks, and together enable a complete new generation of applications: context-aware and pro-active applications. These applications make use of the context of their users, and of the resources (in terms of network capacity, devices) that are currently available. The AWARENESS project focuses on a service and network infrastructure that enables rapid and easy development of context-aware and proactive applications in a secure and privacy-conscious manner. Particular attention is paid to mobile applications in the healthcare domain, specifically to tele-treatment of patients with chronic pain and tele-monitoring of epileptic seizures and uncontrolled movements in spasticity. This paper gives an overview of the AWARENESS project, and describes interim results and research issues that the project addresses to realize the AWARENESS infrastructure and mobile health applications that run on top of it.
