Towards a holistic support to children and adolescents’ health and care provisions in an increasingly digital society
Deadline: 19 de setembro de 2023
Laying the ground for a healthy life starts in childhood. Accordingly, and in line with the HealthyLifestyles4All Initiative, the ‘Healthier Together’ – EU Non-Communicable Diseases Initiative, and the Communication of the Commission on enabling the Digital Transformation of Health and Care, the main goal of the research and innovation should be to promote healthier societies by developing holistic solutions that foster healthy lifestyles from early age with long-term impact(s).
Digitalization poses risks but can also be a driving force for empowering young citizens, who are growing up in an increasingly digitised world, in taking an active role in the management of their own health conditions, mental and social well-being, and promote healthy lives and disease prevention, through innovative solutions, coordinated person-centered care models and better health literacy.
The topic encourages the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as of European, national and regional authorities and civil society, in order to strengthen the scientific and technological expertise of SMEs in the health and care domain to promote the uptake of innovative health and care solutions in Europe.
