New H2020 Project to Make Senior Citizens Benefit from Open Government Data

The Mobile Age project

Launch of a three-year EU co-funded project to develop accessible and inclusive online public services for senior citizens

While more and more public services are made available online only, older persons’ needs and wishes towards digital services are rarely understood and taken in account. This deficit is often exacerbated by their lower digital skills and poor access to the internet.

In order to cope with this, Mobile Age is based on the concept of cocreation: it will develop mobile open government services that are created together with senior citizens.

Thanks to this coproduction approach, Mobile Age will help European public authorities ensure the inclusion of seniors in digital services, ease their administrative tasks thanks to user-friendly applications, and support their access to civic participation, active ageing and their involvement in their communities. The project will also increase transparency and trust in public administration through sharing and reuse public information.

This Project collaborates closely with the Action Cluster on Citizen Focus.
