The first one, entitled Time-To-Engage, aims to: (i) explore the individual and contextual factors that interfere with citizens' intention to use digital technologies in health at an advanced age; and (ii) understand how these factors are shaped by levels of digital skills and engagement, as well as by the availability, accessibility and affordability of digital equipment and connection. The project is funded within the scope of the Social Research Programme by the La Caixa Foundation in collaboration with the Portuguese Foundation for Sciences and Technology. She also coordinates, together with Filipa Ventura, the non-funded project Aequitas@DigiHeatlh: Co-design for equitable digital health, which aims to evaluate the adequacy of a theoretical model of equitable digital health from the perspective of users and managers of health services, as well as professionals of health. The project is developed in partnership with the Health Sciences Research Unit: Nursing of the Nursing School of Coimbra.   Since obtaining her PhD degree, Elzbieta has collaborated with the research group of Policies and Educational Organizations and Educational Dynamics at the Centre of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Coimbra, and with the research group Well-being, Health and Illness at the Health Sciences Research Unit - Nursing at the Higher Nursing School of Coimbra. She is also a part of the Portuguese team of the Red Interuniversitaria Euroamericana de Investigación ALFAMED - Competencias Mediáticas de la Ciudadanía. Within the scope of these collaborations, she was involved in several national and international projects that aim to empower older adults for autonomy and self-care through evidence-based interventions, promoting gains in health and improving physical and cognitive functioning and quality of life. The international projects included: (i) a European project - Frailty management Optimisation though EIP AHA Commitments and Utilisation of Stakeholders Input (FOCUS), co-financed by the CHAFEA, under the power delegated by the European Commission, and (ii) Spanish and Portuguese project - Pilot project for the establishment of a predictive model as possible modulator of aging in health (ModulEn), so-financed by Fundacion General CSIC, Interreg España Portugal and CENIE. She was also involved in the project - Digital and media literacy competencies in Portugal (COMEDIG), co-financed by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, that aimed to assess the level of digital and media literacy competences in the school community, in order to identify training needs and, based on these, to develop digital educational resources and guidelines for training in this area.  

In her professional career, initiated in 2006, she integrated several research projects in the areas of (i) Medical Sciences with an emphasis on Health Sciences, and (ii) Social Sciences with an emphasis on Psychology. Her professional experience is related, in the most part, to the definition and implementation of strategies that promote successful aging, framed in the evidence-based health practice model, and developed in collaboration with academic, political, industrial and social agents.
