According to the Digital Agenda for Europe (2014-2020), enhancing digital literacy, skills and inclusion is one of the main priorities while due to the European Economic and Social Committee, all Europeans – and here elderly people- must become e-seniors as soon as possible. On the other aspect of the context, active ageing means that senior citizens activate themselves in order to be as much as possible independent, and autonomous, taking part in personal, societal, economical life along with their own contribution; digital skills play a crucial role and promotion of Active Digital Skills “proADAS” is oriented to a proper methodology and subsequent results triggering these skills and leading the elderly to be a live part of our society.


The proADAS project aims to:

  • Tackle the gap between ageing population and digital literacy and address the high necessity for digital key competences due to seniors population proportion in Europe, contributing at the same time in the alliance of societal challenges, technological developments and economical growth
  • Strengthen and reinforce the stakeholders, experts and practitioners in the fields of adult education & lifelong learning, digital education & promotion of active ageing competences; empower relative training providers adult's educators and older people's carers to successfully deal with seniors' training and the variety of cases

  • Enhance seniors competences and skills -thus their social participation and quality of life-in the proper way so that they are positively included into society and preventing their isolation concerning specially gender difference & in regards with digital technology and developments
