There are two common challenges in countries of the Danube macro-region. The 1st is the lack of employees or self-employed entrepreneurs who can provide specific simple digital services for SMEs (e.g. basic system administration of Windows workstations, 3d printing, digital campaigns administration, or graphic design). The reasons for this are the extremely low unemployment rate or brain drain. The 2nd challenge is the aging of the population and the employability difficulties of the elderly population. At the EU level is concluded that roughly 30% of the workforce of 51 years or higher is affected. The unemployment rate in this group is 4–10 % higher in comparison to average.
eDigiStars aims to address both challenges. The project objective is to develop sustainable ecosystems which successfully turn older workers into digital self-employed entrepreneurs. This is going to happen through development, pilot, and assuring of sustainability of the eDigiStars innovative system. This system consists of 3 modules – POWERYOU to empower the elderly for digital self-employment, CAMPUS to adjust the relevant digital skills courses to specific needs of Elderlies, and LABEL to assure quality and build trust among SMEs towards the new workforce.
Those are the names of mentioned Tools/modules to be now used in practical ways in working with 50+ people. We are helping the unemployed to find new job possibilities or to be self employable. If you are interested, you can find all three modules on our eDigiStars project website.
