The AAL Call 2016 is part of the 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 in February 2016 a new challenge-led call for proposals:
The aim of this call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects. The proposal must demonstrate a clear route to market and added-value for the different types of end-users. A key priority underlying this challenge will be to integrate existing technologies to create solutions based on ICT that will enable the wellbeing of people with dementia and their communities (family, caregivers, neighbourhood, service providers, care system, etc.). The proposals should include a user-centred approach as well as pilots with a considerable number of end-users involved in order to demonstrate the benefits and added-value necessary to make impact on the market.
Final call information will be available on the AAL website once the call is launched end of February 2016.
