The date of presentation of the offers ends on February 20 at 23 h 59 min.

Within the communication action, the creation of an informative website about the ANETO project has been proposed, and the creation of an application that allows managing the results of the physical aptitude and anthropometric measurement tests that will be carried out. The application should allow creating a database of participants and the people who manage the data, create tests so that some users can enter the results of the tests, create evaluations (test suites) adapted to the program and generate individual reports and of group automatically or semi-automatically of the evaluations carried out. The program should be open to allow authorized users the possibility to create and design new tests, new evaluation templates and new report templates. It must also be in Spanish, French, Basque and English versions.

This application will allow tutors or teachers of physical education in schools the possibility of entering the data of the results of physical or anthropometric evaluations carried out with their schoolchildren, a diagnosis of the physical condition of these students compared to the references international and the rapid and automatic development of reports to parents, seeking maximum efficiency of the time spent by the teacher in the process and an improvement of their benefits that should impact on the improvement of physical condition, education in healthy habits and the health of school children.
