The aim of the Call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects. Call 2020 is characterised by the following approach:

  • The AAL Call 2020 allows for more flexibility regarding the scope, size and duration of the proposed projects (including small collaborative projects).
  • The AAL Call 2020 is open to developing ICT-based solutions targeting any application area(s) within the AAL domain. The solutions need to be embedded in the strategies of the participating end-user organisations, service providers and business partners.

Small Collaborative Projects:

  • This type of instrument will be available in the 2020 Call. Small collaborative projects have a duration of minimum 6 months and maximum 9 months, a maximum co-funding budget of €300.000 and leaner application and reporting procedures. The main objective of the small collaborative projects is the exploration of new ideas, concepts and approaches for ICT-based solutions for older adults. They should reach out to new stakeholders for inclusion in (future) development of AAL solutions, build strong collaborations with end-user organisations, support community building with new customers and create shared agendas. The following countries are participating; Austria, Belgium (Innoviris-Brussels & Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship Agency), Denmark, Italy (MoH, Friuli Venezia Giulia), Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain (ISCIII) & Taiwan.

IFD funding to Danish participants:

  • IFD can only fund Danish partners in the Small Collaborative Projects (SCP)
  • IFD funds projects with at least one Danish partner. Maximum funding for a project with Danish partners is €100.000.
