Call for proposal - Establishing a network on quality a and cost-effectiveness in long-term care and dependency prevention VP/2014/010 Closed!


The purpose of the call is to bring together institutions that can develop solid evidence on the cost-effectiveness of investments in a wide range of measures to reduce the gap between the need for, and supply of, long-term care, including prevention, rehabilitation, assistive technologies and age-friendly environments as well as a more efficient organisation of care systems (notably through better coordination of the different actors involved in providing care)


  • Gather evidence on the main causes of/pathways into dependency;
  • Review the current state of the art in preventing dependency;
  • Examine the potential for rehabilitation for various causes of dependency;
  • Identify measures (removal of barriers, deployment of technical devices...) that would help people with functional limitations to remain independent longer and to have to rely less on care provided by others;
  • Identify potentials for efficiency gains in the delivery of care, including through a better coordination of care delivered by medical and social care professionals and informal carers.
