AAL Call 2019 is part of the Active & Assisted Living Programme (AAL Programme) that was approved in May 2014 by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. As part of the work programme, the AAL Programme intends to launch a new Challenge-led Call for Proposals in February 2019: “Sustainable Smart Solutions for Ageing well”.

The aim of the call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects. Call 2019 is characterised by the following approach:

  1. The AAL Call 2019 is open to developing ICT-based solutions targeting any application area(s) within the AAL domain. The solutions need to be embedded in the strategies of the participating end-user organisations, service providers and business partners.
  2. The AAL Call 2019 allows for more flexibility regarding the scope, size and duration of the proposed projects (including small collaborative projects).

‘The AAL domains include solutions for Active Living, such as in work & training, for vitality & abilities, in leisure & culture, for information & communication,  as well as for Assisted Living, such as in health & care, living & building, mobility & transport, safety & security.’

Call Features

Collaborative project proposals must demonstrate a clear route to market and added-value for the different types of end-users. The wishes and aspirations of older adults in combination with the demands from the other stakeholders involved – e.g. providers and payers – will have a critical role in shaping useful and attractive AAL solutions with a high market potential. Both “Collaborative projects” (carried out by consortia composed of at least 3 organisations from 3 different countries including an end user organisation and a business partner) and “Small Collaborative Projects” (with a shorter duration and smaller budget) will still be funded through this call.

Collaborative Projects

Main features and objectives

Collaborative Projects aim at developing and bringing to market ICT solutions in the AAL domain. Proposals in AAL Call 2019 are expected to be user-driven through co-creation and address a specified challenge. The call stresses a strong involvement of end users – especially secondary and tertiary – and other relevant stakeholders in the shaping of solutions and in creating respective markets. Furthermore, the route to market needs to be clearly described and aligned with the business strategies of the partners responsible for commercialisation. The proposed solutions need to respond to different requirements, depending on the type of market.

Small Collaborative Projects

Main features and objectives

This type of instrument will be available in the 2019 call. Small collaborative projects have a duration of 9 months, a maximum co-funding budget of €300.000 and leaner application and reporting procedures. The main objective of the small collaborative projects is the exploration of new ideas, concepts and approaches for ICT-based solutions for older adults. They should reach out to new stakeholders for inclusion in (future) development of AAL solutions, build strong collaborations with end-user organisations, support community building with new customers and create shared agendas.

Please note:

Final call information is intended to be published with the launch of the call on the AAL website at the beginning of February 2019, the deadline for submitting a project proposal being end of May 2019. Info days are expected to take place by the time of the call opening, potential applicants are invited to register to the AAL Programme newsletter or to monitor the Programme website.
