Abstract—The authors deal with the issues of activating elderly people and improving their quality of life in the context of the possibility of increasing their effectiveness through the use of modern ICT solutions. In particular, the paper is focused on checking the possibilities and conditions for successful implementation of the service e-marketplace platform for occupational activation of elderly people in the context of Polish market conditions. The analysis was conducted on the basis of the results of the survey dedicated to elderly people in Poland and supported with in-depth direct interviews. Thanks to it the socio-economical situation of Polish seniors as well as their attitude towards ICTs could be depicted. The concept of the service e-marketplace platform allowing for offering and requesting different kind of occupational activities (incl. part-time work and volunteering) and its key components were presented. That concept has been verified for compliance with the determined implementation conditionalities.

Index Terms—Digital competences, needs of elderly people, occupational activation, service e-marketplace platform, voluntary work.
