European Funding for Research into Active and Healthy Ageing

The Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC) has now issued calls for proposals, based upon the Directorate for Public Health and Consumers (DG Sanco) Work Programme for 2012. One of the objectives of the second Health Programme of the European Commission is to promote European Citizen’s Health, with a particular focus on increasing healthy life years and promoting healthy ageing. The deadline for proposals is 9 March 2012.

For those interested in participating, an Info Day will be held in Brussels on the 11th January to allow potential applicants to clarify issues regarding the administrative procedure and the technical contents of the call.

The info-session is open to all potential applicants, although prior registration is required by the 9th January at the latest.  If you would like to attend you can register by email providing your first name, your surname and company name.

For those who cannot attend the info session in Brussels, please note that web streaming will be available on the EUROPA website.
