Give&Take kick off
AAL project of the call 6 to start
As part of a new research coordinated by the IT University of Copenhagen, researchers will develop a digital platform, where senior citizens can exchange services. This can become a good deal for the seniors, but also for society at large.
Over the next three years, researchers in the EU funded Give&Take project will design and evaluate a digital platform that will support senior citizens in building social relations by exchanging services, and help them maintain an active citizenship. The platform will be developed in cooperation with the seniors, and is intended to work like this: 82 years old Maria and widower Adam on 75 live in the same apartment block, but don’t know each other. Through the digital platform, they get in touch and get to know each other’s special skills. Perhaps Maria can still cook, so she prepares a meal for Adam, who is not used to cooking at all. In turn, Adam helps mounting a TV on Maria’s wall, which she cannot do herself.
