For decades, the sexual life of older adults has been a taboo, it is time to shake up this old-fashioned attitude and focus on a vital part of seniors’ wellbeing. EDUSEXAGE project will develop a specific training course for retired older people to boost their self-esteem, promote socialization and understand the importance of having an active sexual life, it will also propose a specific training for seniors’ educators and informal caregivers, who may lack adapted and tested guidelines about how to discuss and tackle issues related to the social and intimate life of their old people. The project will enable them to support seniors in increasing their self-confidence and positivity and have a fulfilled sexual life. Finally, EDUSEXAGE will raise awareness among the general public about the importance for people of all ages of leading a fulfilled sexual, social, sentimental and EDUSEXAGE life and about the positive impact of active and healthy ageing.
December 2021 – November 2023
In the 21st century, we are surrounded by complex and ill-structured issues such as combating global climate change, preventing the spread of coronavirus, animal testing for medical purposes, consumption of GMO foods, establishment of nuclear power plants and cloning. Such ambivalent issues are called socio-scientific issues. Due to its controversial nature, individuals entering the decision-making process on these issues make decisions by thinking through many sources of evidence such as the media, family, other people, the discourses of scientific authorities and personal justifications. For this reason, there’s risk of misunderstandings and short-cut bias. For example, today many people are hanging back the Covid-19 vaccination process due to disruptive factors such as misunderstanding, media manipulation and risk perceptions

For this, the human team that makes up the consortium will contribute their previous experience in social sciences, psychology, physical activity and well-being to generate adapted content. Part of this training will be designed to be taught online, with adapted pedagogy and materials that allow older adults to improve their digital skills and promote inclusive accessibility.
March 2022 – February 2024
As people get older, the risk of digital exclusion and divide increases, especially in rural areas. Digital divide prevents seniors from accessing important societal information and community services related to science and technology that can offer benefits for autonomy, well-being, and social participation. Therefore, fake news spreads freely and quickly, which poses a threat to the public. The FakeNews&Elders project promotes the social inclusion of elders as people with fewer opportunities, often digitally and educationally excluded. The project activities are addressed to local educational and learning environments – educators, libraries, trainers, consultants or NGOs. By equipping participants with scientific and critical thinking skills, the course topics will improve their ability to cope with ever present misinformation and miscommunication in the media.
February 2022 – End of January 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.
February 2022 – End of January 2024
This project was born as an opportunity to empower our elder citizens by training them to acquire the skills to be creative on the web and to interact with their peers. But we do believe that the best ones to do so are the younger generations. They use online creativity as a way of communicating. Spending an hour on Tiktok any adult can realize the creative potential and ability of the younger generations. This project will therefore generate the tools needed for young people to be able to train the elderly population on how they can be creative, express themselves, share their knowledge and interact with their peers in an online environment.
SmartHome automation for seniors using simple DIY solutions

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.
