The various project activities are evaluated by a multi-stakeholder Advisory and Evaluation Board. The board comprises representatives from seniors’ associations, community partners, politics, and public authorities, as well as members of the academic community.
The role of the Advisory and Evaluation Board is to evaluate to what extent the project’s activities are in-line with its triple-win objective of creating value for seniors, for online communities, and for the society as a whole, and to issue recommendations. Furthermore, based on their wide variety of experience and expertise, the members of the Advisory and Evaluation Board can provide valuable input to the TAO Management Board to help it increase the project’s impact.
The board is expected to meet three times – towards the end of each project year. Between the meetings, the TAO Management Board is free to consult the members of the Advisory and Evaluation Board on an ad hoc basis.
