117 Project Proposals at the 1st Call of the Ambient Assisted Living Programme (AAL-2008-1) 16 September 2008
The first call for proposals (AAL-2008-1) of the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme has attracted 117 transnational project proposals. Organizations from all AAL Partner States are represented in AAL proposals and project coordinators stem from 19 countries of the 23 AAL Partner States. 950 partners are counted in the transnational project proposals. Total costs of some 370 Mio € were indicated and 230 Mio € are requested as public funding. The total request constitutes a four times oversubscription compared to an announced indicative total funding of 57.7 Mio €.
The final selection of the projects is scheduled for 20 and 21 October at the General Assembly of the AAL Association, i.e. the legal entity that is responsible for the AAL Joint Programme. The Ambient Assisted Living Joint Programme is a joint research and development (R&D) funding activity by 20 European Member States and three Associated States with the financial support of the European Community based on article 169 of the EC Treaty.
