€500,000 Open Call to Support Agile Ageing

Individual grants of between €50,000 and €100,000 are available for scale-up of existing products or services, or development of new solutions. The competition is open to micro, small or medium-sized enterprises, based in Europe- and exceptionally, to include the UK.

This initiative is funded through SHAPES (Smart & Healthy Ageing through People Engaging in Supportive Systems) an EU Horizon 2020 Collaborative R&D “Pathfinder” project spanning 14 countries, exploring interactions between older adults, technology and the built environment.

AAA Founder Ian Spero says: “We are looking for potentially scalable solutions that empower end-users of differing abilities who have different requirements due to either ability, age or circumstance. Winning solutions will be trialled and evaluated across participating living labs and pilot sites, thereby constituting a valuable business development opportunity.”

The Call is now open. Follow this link to register. Deadline 17th March 2023. Winners will be announced April 1st. Expected duration of selected projects 6 months
