Submitted Abstract

SpONSOR aims at developing, testing and implementing an ICT platform that facilitates the posting, browsing and exchange of key information between competence-offering seniors and search-based requests, from competence-demanding organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors. SpONSOR, will significantly enhance senior persons’ access to a wide range of occupational positions, thus meeting the AAL call 6 goal for supporting sense-making and the well-being of seniors in occupational environments whenever possible.SpONSOR achieves this goal primarily through enhancing services within senior-oriented organisations (which we will also call end-user organisations), as a generic indirect mechanism building on the motivation, legitimacy and work already performed by these organisations regarding the possibility for seniors to be engaged in effective occupational activities of some kind. This mediation, achieved very early in the project through key partnerships, will allow for SpONSOR to reach a critical mass of activity within a reasonable time. Only once the platform has been tested and validated as functional and reliable, will particular senior individuals, without any intermediation, be able to interact directly with it. Each end-user organisation will be taken into account according to its context, mission and characteristics, and will be able to configure SpONSOR in its own terms by implementing those services best suited to meet their end-users requirements and preferences.For the end-user, the platform is therefore primarily available through their specific organisational affiliation, with accessible interfaces and through different devices, be they computers, tablets, interactive TV or smartphones.
