AGES project objectives coincide with the European Commission Lifelong Learning Strategy, which is « Encouraging the participation of people of all ages in lifelong learning ».
Taking these statistics into account, AGES will create a number of resources to boost seniors’ inclusion. By creating an awareness on our target group about the European issues and the European level of life standards of the elderly which we are going to observe via our international meetings in which our partners are going to share their best practices, we are going to catch the European benchmarks that are shown in EU Strategical Plan.
SmartHome automation for seniors using simple DIY solutions
Duration: December 2021 – June 2024 (30 months)
Technological advances have made our daily lives easier with the tools offered by technology to manage and automate most of our daily routines related to work or home.
Although there is a wide range of services covering needs such as making sure all windows are closed, informing about intruders in the garden, turning lights on and off etc., there is no comprehensive offer that is affordable and tailored to the needs of each individual. This is the gap that the SmartHome4SENIORS project aims to fill. The project will aim to support and guide older people over 55 with basic ICT skills into the world of connected home solutions while, at the same time, young adults, seniors and volunteers will be engaged to teach their older colleagues, friends and relatives.
December 2022 – November 2024

The DIGIT-GERA project aims at creating something that has not been created before, a comprehensive methodology for teachers of seniors built under an European and common approach. Partners of DIGIT-GERA project are active in many educational environments for adult education; but when it comes to providing tailor-made training programs for seniors, some of them lack the knowledge and skills to do it in a meaningful way. That is why it is important to harmonize good practices and create a critical mass of teachers and trainers able to work with seniors and to promote the acquisition of skills under the European framework for educators to also promote the upskilling of teachers and trainers; increase their mobility opportunities and their digital skills under a common umbrella.
