Proposals should 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 should 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.
Proposals should also design ICT based interventions countering identified risks, as well as innovative treatments and therapies based on early detection.
Proposals should 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.
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.
- 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.
