Project's objective

Development of technological tools

Project's description

The ESSENCE project is aimed at transforming the psychological, social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in a huge opportunity towards a profound evolution of the services, in which technological innovation should assume a crucial role. Moreover, ESSENCE promotes an evolution of the society, in which a generational pact can be supported by assigning to seniors a more active role in the society through the connection with the youngest. ESSENCE proposes to counteract the isolation caused by the outbreak of the pandemic in two particularly affected groups: non-frail or pre-frail older adults independently living at home, and children – with particular attention to those with learning difficulties – who were thrown into this novel home-based education phase.
