Digital Life Learning
Overview of the project
Today’s EU and global societies are undergoing fundamental changes, such as the ageing of populations and digital innovation. Digital Life Learning bases its foundations on the premise that digital innovation can be an opportunity to improve the quality of life of our ageing societies and to shift towards more sustainable and inclusive health and care systems, creating economic growth and jobs.
