e-protect project Transnational Report

The first intellectual output of the e-protect project refers to the development of a Competency Scale for consumer and data protection skills for the elderly during internet use. These competences are derived from the triangulation of three types of research data (desk research, interviews, questionnaires) to ensure that the scale is reliable and addresses the real needs of the target group. The results of each research method are presented in detail on the Transnational report, which is already available on project’s website.

Specific information for each one of these countries is also available at the project website as country reports
