Project learning & interaction – European and national knowledge-sharing

Recently, SIVECO was invited to present the ProMe project at a meeting related to “Age Management Experiences” at ILPO55’s project meeting that took place in Bucharest on 8-9th of July 2015.

Intergenerational Learning Partnership Over 55 (ILPO55) is a project that aims at the creation of an Intergenerational Learning Partnership through supporting employability and reduce skills mismatch.

Both ILPO55 and ProMe projects address the same age group and both are targeting cross-generation issues. On the one hand ProMe is approaching a mentoring mentee relationship to ease the transfer of knowledge from one generation to another, while ILPO55 focuses on designing two qualifications in line with lifelong learning provisions: Adult Trainer & Social Responsibility Facilitator.

The participants in this consultation seminar were very interested in the ProMe project. Thus, we can share best practice information till the end of the project and contribute to sustainable implementation of age management and intergenerational approach.

ProMe exhibiting at AAL Forum 2015

Are you visiting the AAL Forum 2015 in Ghent?

Come and meet the ProMe project consortium, and help us refine our technology platform!

Employment fills a large proportion of our lives and influences the way we live. It creates meaning, provides financial security, influences our social status, contributes to self-esteem, and has an impact on our social relationships at work and beyond.

The ProMe integrated technology platform seeks to provide meaningful opportunities for occupation in the life of older adults, in the transition from work to retirement and beyond by taking an active role as a mentor.

We are exhibiting at the AAL Forum 2015, held in Ghent Belgium between 22-25 September. View our prototype system, experiment with it, and give us your views!

Feel free to contact us before the Forum if you want to discuss anything or set up meetings.

Just email us: info at

We look forward to meeting you in September!


Consortia meeting, Manchester and progress at end of Y1

April 2015 saw the ProMe consortia meet in Manchester to review progress against milestones as the project reached the end of its first year. We had a very productive (and enjoyable) meeting where we focused specifically on platform development issues, system architecture & implementation, and then on graphical user interface designs.

For our end-user organisations and their individual users, platform design and creation of the ‘look and feel’ of the ProMe coaching & mentoring platform is vital. Our technical partners presented us with a variety of designs incorporating all the initial user  requirements & feedback collected earlier in the project, and there were lively discussions about these designs!

We are looking forward to finalising the front-end platform design and navigation in good time for iterative user evaluations scheduled over the summer of 2015!
