Call for Porposals AAL 2018 - Smart Solutions for Ageing well AAL 2018 Closed!


The aim of this international call for proposals is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects developing ICT-based solutions by targeting any application area(s) within the AAL domain; the call text provides with further information on the relevant AAL taxonomy and the specified target markets. For the first time, the call allows for more flexibility regarding the scope, size and duration of the submitted projects by including a new type of instrument, namely the “small collaborative project”.


ICT-based solutions in this call challenge are expected to contribute to sustain or improve the quality of life of older adults in different dimensions and throughout the ageing process for:

  • Living a healthy, active and meaningful life.
  • Living independently and safely for longer at home (keeping the decision and control of their daily activities) with support from their carers and community.
  • Living in dignity and satisfaction.

In case the proposed ICT-based solution includes informal and/or professional carers, it should support them to:
Reduce stress and care burden;

  • Build resilience;
  • Improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of the care they provide.

ICT-based solutions in this call challenge are expected to contribute to:

  • A large exploitation of ICT based solutions for supporting older adults throughout the ageing process. This includes facilitating their supporting environment.
  • A growing public/regulated and private consumer market of interoperable and scalable AAL systems to support active, healthy and independent living.
  • More European/international collaboration, including end-users, industry and other stakeholders in the value chain.
  • Savings for the social/care system as older adults are supported in living independently in their homes for longer, thus lowering the need for homecare and delaying the move to institutionalized/community care.
