SC1 - Health, demographic change and wellbeing
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.
Research & Innovation supported by this call will:
- improve our understanding of the causes and mechanisms underlying health, healthy ageing and disease;
- improve our ability to monitor health and to prevent, detect, treat and manage disease;
- support older persons to remain active and healthy;
- and test and demonstrate new models and tools for health and care delivery.
