AAL Smart Solutions for Ageing Well


28. maj 2018 - 20:00

AAL Call 2018 is part of the Active & Assisted Living Programme (AAL Programme) that was approved in May 2014 by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.

As part of the work-programme, the AAL Programme intends to launch a new Challenge-led Call for Proposals in February 2018: »Smart Solutions for Ageing well«.

The aim of this call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects. The AAL Call 2018 has the following key features that differ from previous AAL calls:

  • AAL Call 2018 is open to collaborative projects developing ICT-based solutions targeting any application area(s) within the AAL domain, with a focus on specified markets.
  • AAL Call 2018 allows for more flexibility regarding the scope, size and duration of the proposed projects. This means smaller consortias and shorter project time.

Collaborative project proposals must demonstrate a clear route to market and added-value for the different types of end-users.

The solutions need to be embedded into the strategies of the participating end-user organisations, service providers and business partners. The wishes and aspirations of older adults in combination with the demands from the other stakeholders involved – e.g. providers and payers - will have a critical role in shaping useful and attractive AAL solutions with a high market potential.

Important to notcie in the 2018 Call - there are two different types/sizes of collaborations. Denmark will only fund the small collaborative projects.
