What is REDLAB Canarias Project?

REDLAB Canarias is a pilot project of EAPN Canarias that aims to combat the digital divide affecting people between 45 and 65 years old, with a low level of education, living in the Canary Islands and receiving the Minimum Living Income and the Canary Insertion Benefit.

The project aims to address and reduce the lack of employment opportunities and access to rights of these target groups, through an innovative training methodology on digitalisation for adults with these socio-educational characteristics.


The crisis caused by COVID-19 has produced an unprecedented acceleration of digitalisation, which is leading Europe to embark on a universal and inclusive «decade of digital transformation» for all people, with equal rights and opportunities.

REDLAB Canarias is born in the framework of the Recovery and Resilience Plan presented by Spain and endorsed by the European Commission to access the NextGenerationEU Funds, created to alleviate the ravages caused by the pandemic.


REDLAB proposes a Training Action based on the European Digital Competence Framework (DIGCOMP) and an accompaniment for the improvement of the employability of the participants.
