This topic aims to implement strategies and actions in line with the Green Paper on Ageing, the EU Long-term care report, the ‘Healthier Together’ – EU Non-Communicable Diseases Initiative, the new EU Care Strategy, which strive to address demographic change and enable better health and care for Europe’s growing ageing societies, as well as to harness the potential of the Silver Economy.
Non-communicable diseases (NDC) prevention is highly relevant to reduce the need for long-term care. New tools and integrated care models are needed, reinforcing primary, community- and home-based health and long-term care provision, through better early detection and management of diseases among older people in an increasingly ageing society and overburdened health and care systems.
The topic encourages the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as of European, national and regional authorities and civil society, in order to strengthen the scientific and technological expertise of SMEs in the health and care domain, promote the European Health- and Age-Tech; and improve the uptake of innovative health and care solutions in the EU and Associated Countries.
The applicants should ensure that the developed solutions, technologies and adoption policies are driven by the needs of citizens and patients of old age and ensure their involvement. Co-creation, co-design with end-users and particular consideration of the diversity of the needs, mental and physical abilities, living and socio-economic conditions as well as life-situations of older people are required, including provision of training to citizens, patients, formal and informal carers.
The proposed research and innovation should focus on all of the following aspects:
This topic addresses consortia including research partners and innovative technology providers, such as SMEs and/or organisations that can offer the range of activities required to address the objectives of the topic; the latter could for example be based on Digital Innovation Hubs, digital health accelerators, incubators and knowledge hubs, Centres offering Pilot Lines or similar technology, business and/or knowledge transfer organisations.
The proposals should be highly integrated, ambitious, go beyond simple networking and provide appropriate indicators to measure progress, impact, cost-effectiveness and adoption in the Europe. Dissemination and involvement of policymakers, both at national and regional level, as well as civil society organisations in a European wide geographical balanced matter is essential, as the results of this action are expected to have European wide impact.
Selected projects under this topic are strongly encouraged to participate in joint activities as appropriate. These joint activities could, for example, take the form of clustering of projects and involve joint coordination and dissemination activities such as the participation in joint workshops, the exchange of knowledge, the development and adoption of best practices and adoption strategies on regional, national and European level. The details of these joint activities will be defined during the grant preparation phase with the European Commission. Applicants should plan a necessary budget to cover this collaboration.
This topic requires the effective contribution of social sciences and humanities (SSH) disciplines and the involvement of SSH experts, institutions as well as the inclusion of relevant SSH expertise, in order to produce meaningful and significant effects enhancing the societal impact of the related research activities.
Applicants envisaging to include clinical studies should provide details of their clinical studies in the dedicated annex using the template provided in the submission system. See definition of clinical studies in the introduction to this work programme part.
