The project "Improving learning capacities and mental health of elder people" aims at developing innovative training materials addressed to elder people (working or retired people) in order to preserve the fitness of their mind. The project execution will count on other additional benefits as it will provide the target collective new knowledge that can be used in their daily life and improve their quality of life.
