Piloting and analysis of results learning programs

Output Description

In this intellectual output, pilot’s studies will be run in order to evaluate and compare two inperson approaches to improve digital skills in older adults, intergenerational and peer-topeer. These pilots will be built using the educational materials developed in the O4 intellectual output.
