Empowering the elderly with digital skills training
The ICT 4 the Elderly project supports the elderly in up-skilling their digital competences. It aims to facilitate a pathway for up-skilling the digital competences of individuals between the age of 55 and 75 and to make them aware of some of the many opportunities that the Internet offers. In order to do so, project partners first collected best practices from other successful projects in order to develop a training manual and an online academy. Once the training materials are ready, individuals aged 55-75 will be selected through a call for applicants and will take part in the piloting as ambassadors of the project. Two pilot trainings with 12 people each will take place in Malta and in Berlin.
