Kick-off meeting of the EU project «e-Active» to develop an application to reduce the digital divide for older people

  • 11/07/2022

The kick-off meeting of the European project «e-Active» (ref. 2021-1-ES01-KA220-ADU-000026543), coordinated by the research institute Polibienestar of the University of Valencia and funded by Erasmus +, will take place in Valencia (Spain) on 12 and 13 July.

The main objective of the project is to promote active and healthy ageing in the elderly through a computer application that facilitates meetings and their social participation in their community. To this end, a mobile application adapted to the needs of the elderly will be developed and professionals working with them will be trained on how to use this application to reduce the digital divide and encourage the participation of this group at the same time.

The project consortium is made up of several European institutions: University of Valencia – Polibienestar (Research Institute); Social IT (Technology Company, Italy); E-seniors (Association, France); Parasol Foundation (Association, Poland), Generations (Association, Bulgaria) and the Institute for Enterprise Development (Institute, Greece).
