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.

What is Digital Life Learning’s aim?

Digital Life Learning Life’s main aim is to create macro laboratories for older citizens aged 65-74 years old with the objective of improving their digital skills.
