Health, demographic change and wellbeing

Responding to this societal challenge, research and innovation under the new Horizon 2020 framework programme is an investment in better health for all. During 2014-15 the EU will invest some €1,200 million in this challenge to
  • improve our understanding of the causes and mechanisms underlying health, healthy ageing and disease
  • enhance our ability to monitor health and to prevent, detect, treat and manage disease
  • support older persons to remain active and healthy
  • test and demonstrate new models and tools for health and care delivery

Depending on the problem which to be solved this can take a variety of forms:

>> Collaborative research

>> Public-public partnerships
