2010 Pilot Joint Call on Life-long Health

In the framework of the 2010 KORANET Pilot Joint Call on Research for Life-long Health we funded 14 projects from Health/Medicine, Technologies and Social Sciences. All projects dealt with improving the quality of the life of older people.
The 14 projects that were funded from autumn 2010 to autumn 2011 were (please click on a project title to download the project fact sheet with more information):              

Background information on the 2010 KORANET Pilot Joint Call on Research for Life-long Health

In the frame of the KORANET Pilot Joint Call (PJC) on Research for Life-long Health researchers were invited to submit online proposals until 2 April 2010.     

The KORANET PJC aimed to bring together European and Korean researchers and scientists to do joint research in the area of life-long health. It tried to approach the topic of life-long health from a multi- and interdisciplinary point of view to ensure optimum synergies and networking options. Thus, project proposals were welcome as long as they aim to overcome the current constraints on the quality of life of the elderly in our society and to help them enjoy better quality lives as they age.       

The three main sub-categories of the KORANET Pilot Joint Call on Research for Life-long health dealt with the quality of life of older people in:

  • Health (gerontology, medicine, genetics, biology)
  • Technology (biotechnology, material science, ICT engineering, robotics, nanotechnology)
  • Social sciences (sociology, political science, demography, statistics, psychology, economics).

The KORANET Pilot Joint Call funded 'Mobility and Networking' (travel and accommodation costs, costs for organising smaller events, smaller other costs) for up to a maximum of 1 year.            

Project consortia had to consist of a minimum of two partners from two different European countries participating in the KORANET Pilot Joint Call (Germany, Austria, France, Turkey) and one Korean partner.  

A maximum of 20,000 Euro in funding was available for each consortium partner.
