Intergenerational home sharing platform is addressing the issue of social exclusion of senior citizens by connecting them with young (student) “helpers” through match making process that results in cohabitation.

Sensifai

Submitted to Connecting the elderly with care-givers to improve social inclusion.

In this project, we develop a conversation-based mood caster in the form of a mobile application, which collects the mood of elderly people from their normal vocal conversation with a simple and user-friendly application in their mobile set and cast it to the considered social action centre and optionally their relatives. Our product reassures both elderly people and social service centres that reactive services are provided in a timely manner if necessary. We have a plan to further extend and improve the product after the pilot phase and scale to the global markets due to high demand of the market and exceptional potential of the product to address the monitoring and assistive needs of the seniors.

Access to information is crucial for migrants in order to integrate into the host society. Therefore, we would like to develop an app where migrants can easily find answers to their questions about their new home. Using the information platform developed in the frame of the DRIM project – co-financed by Interreg transnational program – we plan to organize a “Hackathon” inviting professionals from both host society and migrant communities to develop a mobile solution to the challenge of “lack of access to information” in a record time of 48 hours.

Designathon Works

Submitted to Educating pupils on climate change to become active and engaged citizens

The world in which children will live in as adults will be radically different, which calls for different sets of skills and attitudes. Current educational systems focus on knowledge transfer and insufficiently cultivate tech literacy & creativity. This is where Designathon method fills the gap, combining design thinking and maker movement, while children are working on real-life problems.
