The Active and Assisted Living (AAL) programme funds projects in partnership with industry in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to work towards improving the quality of life of older people, while strengthening the industrial base in Europe through the use of ICTs.

The aim of the call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects.

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.

It 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 (in work & training, for vitality & abilities, in leisure & culture, for information & communication), as well as for Assisted Living, (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.

The submission platform will be open on 13 February, once the national eligibility check has been carried out and the last technical updates implemented.

More than 1,000 partner companies

Since 2008, more than 220 projects have been co-financed under this programme, involving more than 1,000 partner companies, nearly half of which are SMEs that collaborate with user organisations, large companies, universities and research organisations to develop innovative solutions.

In Luxembourg, the Ministry of the Economy (via Luxinnovation as National Contact Point) and the National Research Fund provide access to AAL funding with a dedicated budget of € 325,000 each, for a total of € 800,000, adding the complementary mechanisms of the European Union.
