Pre-announcement joint call 2017: ‘Ageing in place in a digitising world’
The JPI MYBL supports research through joint calls for proposals. Projects are expected to be multi-disciplinary, to cross the traditional boundaries of Government, departments and sectors. The Joint Transnational Call for proposals 2017 will be launched on 7 December, during the European summit on Digital Innovation for Active & Healthy Ageing in Brussels. The call is concerned with the ways in which the wellbeing of older people, at all stages of later life, is supported and promoted through the design of the physical environment, the use of technologies of all kinds, and access to opportunities for learning. The objective is to attract innovative investigations which cross the boundaries of conventional academic disciplines, giving preference to proposals which explore the potential of interactions between the themes of place, learning and technology.
At the summit, the chair of the Societal Advisory Board Dr. Heidrun Mollenkopf will participate in the workshop session on ‘Accelerating Uptake of Innovation for Health and Ageing: Listen to users’ (6 December, 13:30-14:30).
