IPERIA introduced the careNET project during the 3rd European Standardization Summit in Istanbul on 11 June 2014. The CEN and CENELEC, European Standardization Organizations, together with the Turkish Standards Institution organized this major event.
The digital competences of care workers were addressed during the session “Skills for the silver economy”. IPERIA supported that the standardization of digital competences frameworks could positively impact the professionnalisation of carer workers in the European ageing society.
The president of the CEN, Friedrich Smaxwil, took part to this session. One of his conclusions was: ““The people who will educate us have to be teached on a specific way”. The professionnalisation of home care workers was thus identified and displayed as a challenge in Europe.
