Successful Intergenerational learning through Validation,Education & Research

Project Concept

The SILVER project aims to develop a unique holistic and inclusive approach for intergenerational learning among knowledge workers, by addressing the difficulties of implementing it in an organisation. With this 2-year-long project we aim to contribute to the development of the European Union as an advanced knowledge-based society by helping organisations implement lifelong intergenerational learning in order to capitalize on ageing workers’ capacities.

Project Results

The aims of the project are:

  • Increase older workers’ employability through developing key competences
  • Assure critical organisational knowledge retention and reuse
  • Contribute to younger workers’ learning and development
  • Help embed sustainable innovation in organisations
  • Effectively implement intergenerational learning in different sectors and cultures
