The aim of the project is to develop a software framework that allows easy creation and operation of web-based platforms to support the preservation and transfer of older people’s experience for the benefit of future generations. ExpAct provides online and offline services to enable older people to stay in work or re-enter the workforce. Their skills and expertise are too valuable to be left untapped. By sharing their experience and knowledge, they make a valuable long-term contribution and stay engaged in society, which enhances their quality of life.
Expected results and impact:
A software framework is being developed which allows older people to share their experience with those who may benefit from it. Various pilot applications in different countries will be tested. By providing retired people with the opportunity of engaging or re-engaging in professional and social interaction, their self-esteem will be strengthened. ExpAct offers new challenges and activities and thereby supports and promotes active and healthy ageing. Society in general and the labor market in particular will benefit from having access to a wealth of experience.
