The exclusion of elderly individuals from the digital landscape has inspired the EUFACETS project to introduce an innovative social network model tailored to their needs and those of their extended families. This project is focused on developing an application based on this model that allows users to digitize analog photos and share them with the elders digitally. The elders can then contribute
stories and memories associated with the photos, which will be accessible totheir family members. The solution primarily caters to the elders, with the goal of reuniting them with distant relatives and friends as well as reconnecting them with their pre-digital past. This initiative is committed to avoiding the control,standardization and commercial exploitation often seen on current  digital platforms based on the face.

The project’s kickoff meeting aims to gather international scholars from the fields of aging, face studies and digital technology to take a crucial first step towardcreating an alternative to the predominantly quantitative and hardware-focused approach found in existing digital technology for the elders and their extended families.
