Project overviewThe project iHeal, co-funded by Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships in the field of adult education, aims to create a training programme to facilitate elderly people’s access to electronic health services. The project proses the design and development of an inclusive, interactive and user-friendly digital platform to equip and improve digital health literacy for the elder European population (50+).
GoalsThe project involves the development of an innovative information technology tool, its associated services, the dissemination of results on pedagogical practices for quality lifelong learning.
