Digital capacity and skills
The objective of the project is to create an ecosystem including tools for the provision of training, literacy, information and awareness in the area of ICT for active and healthy aging. There are two main target groups: agents for social inclusion, and the elderly and the general population. For the first target group, agents of social inclusion, the platform intends to be an online meeting point and a means to improve their training skills. For the second target group, the elderly and the general public, the platform will include both training material and practical tools to implement the knowledge acquired. The tools will be designed specifically for the elderly (interfaces, SmartTV, etc.), will enable participants to immediately apply the knowledge and at the same time will encourage them to keep on learning. The platform will combine different tried and tested technologies, but will be unique and innovator as a whole. The pilot will be implemented in 15 regions, covering 15.000 participants. In addition to the platform, the project will conduct two studies, one on the state of the art and the other on the impact of ICT for active and healthy ageing.
