Development of national models for projecting social policy needs
Description of call
"Development of national models for projecting social policy needs"

Member States will be confronted with strong demands on their social protection systems over the coming decade or two, particularly as a result of the ageing of the baby-boom cohorts. The purpose of this call is to help Member States obtain a more advanced capacity for anticipating future demands on their welfare systems and exploring options for responding to them. It is expected that five to eight grants can be awarded for the purpose of developing new modelling capacities or strengthening existing ones. 

Grants for up to 3 years will be awarded to Member States (or public bodies designated by them) through a call for proposals to develop modelling tools that can be used to anticipate social needs and simulate different policy responses to them. A special focus will be on ageingrelated needs in the area of pensions and long-term care.

Thematic Focus Employment, Equal Rights, Innovation, Social affairs
