2014 Call for Proposals of the AAL Programme

Ageing demographics and declining health in older adults are predicted to put unaffordable pressures on care systems and society, so change and innovation is required to better cope with these challenges. Old-age support ratios are projected to halve between 2012 and 2050 across OECD countries. There are other factors, such as increased urbanisation and migration that result increasingly in older people living alone and contribute to making current approaches to professional care, informal care and service delivery unsustainable.

The 2014 Call Challenge of the AAL Programme aims at funding the development and testing of ICT-based solutions in real life situations which enable and support sustainable care models for older adults. Applicants should consider:

  • How ICT-based solutions reconcile increased demand with limited resources;
  • How ICT-based solutions increase and facilitate the supply of formal and informal care for older adults;
  • How ICT-based solutions reduce the demand for care through prevention and self-management;
  • How ICT-based solutions can support the shift towards better care at home and in the community.
