Open Call SC1-HCO-16-2016: Standardisation needs in the field of ICT for Active and Healthy Ageing
The area of ICT for active and healthy ageing (AHA) is a new cross-sectorial domain in which standards play a key role. Standardisation efforts in the area tend to be taken by the different domains' actors individually, often lacking a coordinated and targeted approach. Different national/regional initiatives, labels and standards are emerging in some of the related fields, which could potentially make interoperability difficult and impede or reduce scalable growth opportunities.
The proposal is expected to foster user-centred ICT innovation on AHA by engaging, supporting and coaching stakeholders to develop and implement their actions in the area of standardisation. They should cover standardisation within the area of AHA, in particular in the domains of ICT infrastructures for the implementation and delivery of services for independent living in age-friendly buildings, scaling-up of innovative care services and interoperability profiles for independent living.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
- Engagement of required stakeholders to ensure lasting impact;
- Identification of standardisation and other types of harmonisation needs and creation of a clear roadmap with actions needed to address them;
- Accelerated progress in the establishment of favourable framework conditions for introducing user-friendly ICT solutions for AHA into the European market and a metrics for measuring the progress;
- Elaboration of a first draft for smart / age-friendly home guidelines and roadmap for the development of a certification or label;
- Networking and match-making among stakeholders, including R&I projects and relevant standardisation bodies.
Deadline Date: 16 February 2016 17:00:00 (Brussels local time)
