Joint Call 2024: Labour force shortages within the long-term care sector

This call aims to address how new forms of technological development and digitisation have the potential to be transformative and mitigate labour shortages, while also considering that solutions often start from a perspective of technology rather than from the user. We are especially interested in comparison between countries and in learning from different innovative strategies and solutions to attract and retain staff.

Aim of the Joint Call

This call aims to address how new forms of technological development and digitisation have the potential to be transformative and mitigate labour shortages, while also considering that solutions often start from a perspective of technology rather than from the user. We are especially interested in comparison between countries and in learning from different innovative strategies and solutions to attract and retain staff.

To address these issues we want to fund research on three interrelated aspects of the labour force shortages in the LTC sector within the framework of demographic change, ageing and care of older people. These are: ‘Working situation’, ‘Role of AI’ and ‘Cross-national differences and similarities within different welfare systems‘. Proposals must address all three research topics, paying particular attention to cross-cutting issues of gender, ethnicity and social inclusion.

Proposals should include the perspective of care givers as well as those receiving care and we encourage involvement of industry and/or third sector project partners where appropriate. Overall, we are interested in research that goes beyond only the mapping of issues described and instead proposes practical solutions informing policymakers, the care sector and/or other related organisations.

Further information:
