The AAL Association has announced the challenge for its next AAL 2018 Call for proposals: 'Smart Solutions for Ageing well'. The new challenge-led call will have room for more flexible, smaller innovation projects. It will open in February 2018.

The AAL Call 2018 will have the following key features that differ from previous AAL calls:

  • It will be open to collaborative projects developing ICT-based solutions targeting any application area(s) within the AAL domain, with a focus on specified markets;
  • It will allow for more flexibility regarding scope, size and duration of the proposed projects, including small collaborative projects.

The big news of the 2018 Call is the inauguration of a new and more flexible approach to innovation: the small collaborative projects.

Over the years end-user groups and other partners in consortia reported that it is difficult to fully explore new approaches or target new business sectors or stakeholder groups within the close framework and time schedule of a fixed multi-annual project. There is a need for more flexible and short-term possibilities for substantial cooperation. The 2018 call will respond to this by offering flexible frameworks for developing ICT-based solutions for ageing societies.

Small collaborative projects have a duration of 6 months, a maximum co-funding budget of €300.000 and leaner application and reporting procedures.
