E-Seniors would be interested in participating in all topics. It could provide seniors' insight on issues such as seniors' loneliness, seniors' social participation and intergenerational cooperation, seniors' use and acceptability of new technologies and seniors' perception of their own mental and physical health.
By involving seniors at all stages of the project, we could increase the impact of the proposal : validating the research question, co-creating and co-designing novel approaches with seniors, outreach and dissemination of scientific knowledge and outcomes to the senior public and NGOs.
