Multiplier Event of the DESIRE Project in Coimbra, Portugal

The multiplier event of the DESIgn for all methods to cREate age-friendly housing” (DESIRE) project will be held on 8 November 2022, in a face-to-face and hybrid format, at the Nursing School of Coimbra. 

DESIRE is an Erasmus + project involving five organisations from four European countries: Portugal, Spain, Slovakia and Slovenia. This project aims to provide professionals in the construction and home furnishing sector with the necessary tools and skills to apply the D4All methods as a solution for the well-being, comfort and autonomy of older or dependent adults at home.

The event will focus on discussing and sharing the results achieved in the three outputs of the project:

·        Transnational Guide on Design for All (D4All) skills gaps;

·        DESIRE Curriculum and Modules

·        DESIRE online platform and content.

The project will be presented during the morning session by the representative of the Spanish partner, CETEM, Maria Sanchez Melero, with a presentation on the process, methods and results.

In the afternoon session, led by the Portuguese partner, SHINE 2Europe, an active methodology will be used to allow participants to experience, through hands-on learning, how the online platform works and to access the content first-hand, learn and try out the practical exercises.

We intend that a wide community can benefit from this action.

The event will be inserted in a Conference with an extended programme, dedicated to social innovation, learning and implementation and will count with hundreds of national and international participants interested in these themes, so we invite you to participate in all the other sessions that you consider relevant.
