HOPES® at a glance

  • Back in 2008–2009
The project began at the end of 2008 by gathering European partnersí expertise and became what was successfully approved by AALiance in September 2009. Being original by using ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and not being an ICT, being a service and not a product, HOPES® decided to become the 1st European social network BY and FOR the elderly and their carers, for helping the first ones to live home longer by using e-Social Best Practices®. Certified by the users themselves, these e-SBPs® (e-Social Best Practices®) are solutions, advices, recommendations, tips and tricks... to prevent from dependency and maintain their autonomy and quality of life. HOPES® is focusing on social interactions such as social relations, intergenerational links and support, and enhancing communities.
