AWARE: Ageing Workforce towards an Active Retirement
Welcome to the AAL AWARE Project
This project has been funded by the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme and the national funding authorities of Spain, Germany, Italy and UK (see http://www.aal-europe.eu/aal-association for details).
The AWARE project aims at developing a solution for social inclusion of retired people and at preparing older workers for transition to retirement. This objective has been achieved by providing an online platform (SEN+) that can enable social interaction of both groups in order to promote an active aging.
The final results of the project is mainly addressed to companies and institutions. The goal is to help them in the management of their mature workers and collaborators. Companies have a good chance with this tool to keep and manage the knowledge and experience of their workers, to bridge the gap between young and old workers and to develop strategies to ease and manage the transition to retirement.
To do this we have developed the Senior Experience Network (SEN+).
The SEN+ platform is a specific Social Network with three modules integrated, devoted to communicate, share knowledge and experiences, access to training and receive useful information about work and home.
The platform and its interfaces have been designed basing on accessibility and usability requirements of the final users. It has been developed using open-source software and the system is modular in design to maximize flexibility and extensibility.
