Open Calls



The 3rd Open Call has launched on December 16th 2022 with a submission deadline mid – March 2023. Projects funded in this one would be expected to conclude within six months not exceeding the termination date of the SHAPES project. Organizations are invited to apply for a share of €500,000, to facilitate the creation of novel applications that support smart and healthy ‘Agile Ageing’ in the built environment. Individual grants of between €50,000– and €100,000 are available for scale-up of existing products or services, or development of new solutions. The competition is open to micro, small or medium-sized enterprises, based in Europe- including the UK – proposing compelling social innovation concepts, encompassing equality, diversity and inclusion in the design and development of a product, process, or service which can be trialled and evaluated across participating living labs and pilot sites, including the SHAPES technological platform and the SHAPES Marketplace. This initiative is funded through SHAPES (Smart & Healthy Ageing through People Engaging in Supportive Systems) an EU Horizon 2020 Collaborative R&D “Pathfinder” project spanning 14 countries, exploring interactions between older adults, technology and the built environment.
