JPI MYBL publishes preliminary call for proposals
JPI MYBL will launch its first joint transnational call for proposals in April 2015. This call will enable a better coordination of national, European and Canadian R&D programmes and activities relevant to Demographic Change (ageing societies) in order to address the most urgent and demanding challenges defined in the Strategic Research Agenda, developed under the EC Funded Coordinated Action J-AGE.
The call will see more than EUR 7 million being made available by the 10 funding organisations involved in the call.
The aim of the call is to support innovative and interdisciplinary research into the drivers to, and constraints on, extending working life. Research is expected to cross the traditional boundaries of government departments and occupational sectors and to examine the implications of extending working life for older workers (50+), new labour markets, health, wellbeing and intergenerational equity. This will be a 1-step call (i.e. no pre-proposals), anticipated to be launched on April 1st 2015, with a submission deadline of June 2nd 2015.
Further detail will be provided on April 1st 2015. Read more on the JPI MYBL website.
