Proposal Submission Platform


The Joint Transnational Call 2016 is opened with the objective of enabling a better coordination of national, European and Canadian R&D programmes and activities relevant to Demographic Change in order to address the most urgent and demanding challenges defined in the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), developed under the EC funded Coordination and Support Action J-AGE II. The aim of the call is to support research which will improve the understanding of how different approaches to welfare secure the quality of life, especially on older people. The objective is to develop comparative perspectives on “welfare models”, and the ways in which they are changing, drawing on the great diversity of approaches to welfare across Europe and Canada. A better understanding of these differences can help policymakers to identify potential ways of meeting needs, as their own models evolve in response to changing demographic pressures and circumstances. Because welfare models involve a complex interaction of public, private and voluntary activity, understanding them, their impact and the ways in which they are changing, will draw on expertise from many academic disciplines. Therefore proposals shall have an interdisciplinary nature.

  • Research Foundation Flanders (FWO), Belgium (Flanders)

After the proposals of the First Call of the JPI MYBL were evaluated during this summer the review meeting took place in October. The funding recommendation was based on the peer review report, the national criteria and the budgets available. The applicants have been informed about the results. The start of the projects is envisaged for the beginning of 2016. Further information will follow soon.
