Responding to this challenge, research and innovation (R&I) under Horizon 2020 is an investment in better health for all. It aims to keep older people active and independent for longer and supports the development of new, safer and more effective interventions. R&I under Horizon 2020 also contributes to the sustainability of health and care systems.
Seven strategic research priorities are implemented through the three calls under the 2018-2020 tri-annual work programme.
Societal challenge 1 is also implemented by the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 (IMI 2), European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) and the Active and Assisted Living Programme (AAL).
Currently there are no open Health Horion 2020 calls. The next calls can be expected under the Cluster Health in Horizon Europe in 2021 and the Mission on Cancer.
Information on the open IMI calls can be found on our open call page.
