ENDORSE project is cited in Nature Outlook

In the article titled “Robots rise to meet the challenge of caring for old people” it states:
  
The European Union has provided about €1.1 million (US$1.25 million) to fund a four-year project called ENDORSE, which is due to end in September 2022, for a hospital robot with sensors that can both record patients’ vital signs and link them with electronic health records.

Sensors like this are currently available at every intensive-care bed, but in less-urgent care settings and assisted-living facilities, caregivers typically need to hunt for the appropriate equipment, says Nacim Ramdani, a control systems engineer and head of the robotics department at the University of Orleans, France. “Periodic monitoring could be done more cheaply, because you do not necessarily need the nurse running around,” he says.
