European Call for Proposals

Active and Healthy Ageing

The Call for Proposals H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention” has been opened by the European Commission, Directorate Research and Innovation.

 

The context in which the Call for Proposals H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention” acts is quality of life of citizens in an ageing European population. Indeed, they are at greater risk of cognitive impairment, frailty and social exclusion with considerable negative consequences for their quality of life, that of those who care for them, and for the sustainability of health and care systems. The earlier detection of risks associated with ageing, using ICT approaches, can enable earlier intervention to ameliorate their negative consequences.

 

The purpose of the current Call for Proposals H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention” is to focus on early risk detection and intervention: specifically ICT based solutions which support active and healthy ageing by enabling early detection and minimisation of risks associated with ageing, including (but not limited to) cognitive impairment, frailty, depression and falls.

 

Proposals under the current H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention” call should aim to:

- demonstrate the link between changes in behaviour and subsequent negative consequences of ageing by unobtrusive behavioural sensing, and large scale collection of data readily available in the daily living environment of older individuals;

- design ICT based interventions countering identified risks, as well as innovative treatments and therapies based on early detection;

- build on multi-disciplinary research involving behavioural, sociological, health and other relevant disciplines, and on stakeholder engagement in order to be driven by relevant user needs to ensure end-user acceptance (including gender aspects). Full account should be taken of relevant data protection aspects.

 

Projects funded by the Call for Proposals H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention” is expected to have the following impact:

- Evidence for the benefits of risk detection and intervention, based on proof of concept and involvement of relevant stakeholders

- Clear improvements of outcomes for individuals, care systems and wider society from new therapies and interventions based on early risk detection in comparison with current practices.

- Global leadership in ICT based innovation for active and healthy ageing.

 

Under the current Call for Proposals H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention”, eligible proposals will be research and innovation actions. That is actions primarily consisting of activities aiming to establish new knowledge and/or to explore the feasibility of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution. For this purpose they may include basic and applied research, technology development and integration, testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment. Projects may contain closely connected but limited demonstration or pilot activities aiming to show technical feasibility in a near to operational environment.

 

The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 104 500 000 maximum. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 3 and 4 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. The funding rate is 100%.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current Call for Proposals H2020-PHC-2015-single-stage “Personalising health and care” topic PHC-21-2015 “Advancing active and healthy ageing with ICT: Early risk detection and intervention” is 21 April 2015.
