The European voice for informal carers

Eldicare 2.0 partners meeting in Prague

On the 16th and 17th of April the Eurocarers team flew to Prague to attend the annual meeting of the Eldicare 2.0 consortium – the first occasion for partners to meet in-person since the project kick-off in Athens last July. The event provided a framework for the consortium to come together and take stock of the progress made in the first year of the project. 

During the two-day meeting, partners also took a look at the workplan for the upcoming months, focusing in particular on the forthcoming publication of the ‘Blueprint Report on the future of elderly care’, expected for the summer. Report findings will allow to define an upskilling and reskilling strategy for elderly care, and develop a set of up-to-date occupational skills profiles based on the analysis of skill needs and gaps. Further down the line, the new profiles will be used as a guidance to design, test and deliver competence-based training curricula for the reskilling and upskilling of elderly care – which will be piloted in 6 EU countries.

The consortium also discussed a plan for future communication and dissemination activities. A key date is the European Educational Symposium taking place in Athens in September 2024. The Eldicare 2.0 consortium will be in conversation with key stakeholders from the education sector, to discuss ‘21st century skills in long-term care’. Eurocarers will also take part in a session focusing on informal carers.

To conclude the productive gathering, partners visited a local elderly care home in Prague, gaining a deeper understanding on how service provision works in Czech Republic.
