The SENEXIA project in brief...
The European Erasmus+ project with the title SENEXIA - Promoting seniors' employment and self-employment and contract number: 2021-1-FR01-KA220-ADU-000027099 is implemented by a partnership, with coordinator the organisation Générations Solidaires Val d'Oise 95 - France and partners The Rural Hub CLG - Ireland, Anmiro Oy - Finland, INTEGRA FILDER E. V. - Germany, DRUZHESTVO ZNANIE - Bulgaria and AN. KA. S.A. - Greece.
The aim of the SENEXIA project, is to address the issue of adult education and more specifically, this of older people. The partners and the project, aim at inclusion and diversity in terms of adult education and seek to improve the training of older people. The project will support people over 50 years old to overcome the barriers they face in accessing the labour market, such as fewer opportunities and potential age discrimination.
As the implementation of this project needs to be immediate, locally applicable and scalable across Europe, the partnership aims to provide innovative and concrete actions based on the development of effective tools, such as:
A training programme for older entrepreneurs to support their transition from traditional entrepreneurship to digital entrepreneurship.
Development of an interactive infographic to improve the digital skills of older entrepreneurs
Successful and inspiring narratives of older workers
Development of a Mooc platform to enhance the digital skills of older workers
The proposed model for promoting entrepreneurship of older people in the SENEXIA project will be tested in 6 EU Member States. This collaboration strengthens the respective competences of the project partners and allows for the production of high-quality deliverables with potential for implementation in other countries.
The Erasmus+ 2021 programme for adult education and training supports actions related to digital transformation through the development of digital readiness, resilience and competences. SENEXIA aims to strengthen and improve digital skills for older people's entrepreneurship and the use of European digital skills frameworks to support educators, citizens and organisations.
