The Researchers voice
Value Ageing is an innovative and forward thinking project that has a chance to better the lives of the older population. I enjoyed the opportunity of being a part of it and I am very glad I had the occasion to learn more about the topic, learn from the experiences of those at the host organisation and of course enjoy Italy..
Value Ageing for me has been an experience at 360 degrees. I visited new places, met new cultures, many new friends and wonderful colleagues from all over the Europe. Together with them I learned how the fundamental values can be incorporated in ICT developments to improve the quality of our future and I feel that with my work, I’m contributing to make it happens.
Value Ageing for me was a valuable international, collaborative opportunity that as a recruited researcher allowed me to embark on a career change from USA back to Europe, to continue to focus and strengthen my experience and skills in research, analysis and writing. I truly appreciate this experience as it’s improved my professional CV, opened doors and strengthened my network in EU, while meeting and working with incredibly knowledgeable and kind colleagues!.
After Value Ageing Experience, I’ve been involved in other 5 European Projects, I managed several proposal, I applied new methodologies and academical skills learnt in Belfast (QUB)in my everyday work. Before this experience I couldn’t do anything of that!
