Eldicare 2.0, supported by the European Union Erasmus and Alliance for Innovation programmes, aims to strengthen the cooperation among organisations from different sectors working on elderly care and health and social care.
The project aims to support the development of occupational profiles and competencies of professionals in the elderly caregiving sector, through a sectoral skills long-term strategy that will tackle skills gaps on the labour market, as well as anticipating future skills.
ESN is responsible of the delivery of the “Skills Anticipation Mechanism” to monitor the future skills needed in the elderly care sector.
ESN will lead the involvement of external stakeholders, active in the project theme field, in validation workshops to approve several work package deliverables (e.g. policy recommendations to strengthen the elderly care workforce, occupation skills profiles for elderly care practitioners and the upskilling and reskilling strategy for elderly care sector).
The project kick-off meeting took place in Athens on 3-5 July 2023.
