We are pleased to announce that the BOOMER project "Booming digital literacy skills among elderly population" has been approved in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, within the field of Adult Education.
Over recent years social inclusion of seniors emerged as one of the most pressing priorities for EU policy makers. Negative demographic trends along with rapidly increasing penetration of digital technologies in virtually every aspect of human living have promoted elderly population (seniors) into one of most vulnerable and disadvantaged societal group. BOOMER tackles these issues by exploiting synergies between representatives of almost entire ecosystem aimed at bridging of intergenerational and social divide caused by digital transformation.
The co-funded project, which will be developed from September 2022 to August 2024, will involve a consortium of 8 partners from 5 different countries (Croatia, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Spain), who will combine their knowledge and expertise to create synergies and bring the project's implementation to a successful conclusion.
