Memo on the meeting on June 1, 2018

Representatives of the Institute and the non-governmental-organization eSeniors Network: eInclusion and active aging have discussed possible cooperation to promote the use of e-services and information technology among the elderly.  The Institute as an important organization in the life of the seniors, a provider of e-services and the organisation, which managed to largely digitise its business, tries to expand the use of e-services among the seniors in different ways. One aspect of such an approach is also collaboration with the network eSeniors, which aims for the active participation of older people in society through the use of e-services and modern information technologies.  After the initial presentations of the head of the network eSeniors Professor Dr. Jože Gričar and Deputy Director-General of the Institute, Edmond Pajk MSc, it was decided, that future cooperation is important to promote and expand the use of e-services among the elderly, especially on the following fields:

  • Information and awareness-raising on the use of e-services and technology
  • Design Advisory Committee of the design and adaptation of e-services to the needs of the elderly
  • The inclusion of educational content for the use of e-services in non-governmental educational institutions for seniors.

The participants agreed to meet again in the first half of September 2018.
