JPI Demographic – Ageing and Place in a Digitising World
Apr 3 @ 17:00

JPI Demographics invites proposals for its joint transnational call for research proposals – ageing and place in a digitising world. This supports projects that improve the health and wellbeing of older people, to enable less-active elderly to be more engaged in social life and more active contributors to wider society, and to do this in cost-effective ways. JPI Demographic is interested in understanding the implementation of new technologies in an inclusive manner, to help finding new solutions which accommodate individuals´ needs, aspirations and limitations, as well as the ways in which they learn and interact with others. Projects should recognise the diversity of older people and to ensure that practical and policy changes do not unfairly put them at a disadvantage on the basis of factors like gender, ethnic origin, social class, location or disability.

Each proposal must involve a minimum of three eligible applicants from at least three different countries participating in the call (with a maximum of seven). Participants not eligible to be funded may participate in the call as long as they can secure their own funding. All applicants must comply with national funding regulations.

The duration of the projects can be up to three years, funding amounts differ per country (for Dutch applicants max. €250.000).
