The project involves the development of a multilingual software kit with which to build online platforms that allow the professional and life expertise of seniors to be transferred and used. The software kit has to allow for customization in order to build websites for different usage. Thus, various pilot applications are tested.

 

If you are interested in supporting the project team by testing the solution, please do not hesitate to contact the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

 

Pilot “Hungary”

Responsible Partner: Andrássy University Budapest

Test country: Hungary

The objective of the pilot AUB in the context of ExpAct is to provide an open platform for job placements targeted to Hungarian seniors. The market analysis of the Hungarian job market showed a meaningful need for job platforms targeted to an older focus group. Thus, the overall Pilot objective is to provide a job platform that involves seniors within the city of Budapest into small professional tasks of local Small and Medium-Sized companies. From a high-level perspective its further aim is to value the expertise of Senior Professionals and it can be understood as a reaction to demographic change.

Pilot “Return2Work”

Responsible Partner: Ethical Software Coop. Soc. and European Academy of Bozen

Test country: Italy

The primary objective of the pilot is the reintegration of unemployed elderly into the job market of South Tyrol – but also job placements of senior citizens, who are already retired, are possible within R2W. Both long-term job perspectives and short-term work opportunities are desirable outcomes within the pilot. In R2W, the elderly benefit from a new, personalized tool that identifies adequate job opportunities, which fit well with their individual experiences and needs. Likewise, companies get access to persons who have exactly the competences and skills they need, e.g. in times of personnel and financial shortages. For further information, please contact the European Academy of Bozen and visit the following Website: http://return2work.ethicalsoftware.it/

Pilot “Zeitbank”

Responsbile Partner: University of Innsbruck / Andrássy University Budapest

The ambition of ZBT within ExpAct is to reach a directly, fully automated matching of supply and demand for social engaged members of the ZBT for tasks within the organization. The tool should help to ease the brokerage of Tasks. On this market place for time, secondary end-users can offer part of their sparetime in the area for meaningful tasks in the society and attain positive hours credited on their ZBT account. The individual benefit is personal satisfaction from doing social good and as the case may be in-tercultural and intergenerational exchange. A further benefit from their perspective is the op-portunity to maintain a social meaning within their current period of life, which should motivate them to an ambitious and active attitude. The motivation of the focus group from the demand side is a fast, and reliable access to help and assistance. From a high-level perspective ZBT’s aim is to support possibilities with focus on elderly to engage in voluntary work.
