Joint request for twinning action

Application form

 

Deadline: 15 September 2016

 

 

Regional organisations that are engaged in the works of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) by means of “Individual Commitments” or "Collaborative Commitments" and holding Reference Site status as a result of the 2016 call can apply to benefit from a scheme that supports expenses incurred to facilitate the transfer of innovative practices for implementation in another region. The focus is on digitally-enabled innovative ICT solutions for health and care delivery for the ageing population.

 

There are two types of organisations involved:

  • The "Organisation adopting the innovative practice" (receiving/adopter organisation) (is the organisation that will receive the innovative practice and deploy / implement it in its territory). This is the organisation that is awarded Reference Site status in the 2016 call and will benefit from the experience and know-how developed by the "organisation transferring an innovative practice" in a particular field of intervention;  
  • The "Organisation transferring the innovative practice" (originator organisation), which is the organisation with the experience and know-how developed in a particular field of intervention, that is awarded Reference Site status in the 2016 call and that is included in the innovative practices repository of the EIP on AHA.

 

An essential requirement for the adopting organisations is clear financial commitment to implement/procure the innovative practice within the timeframe 2016-2018.

 

The objective of this support scheme is to support the transfer of innovation (from the "organisation transferring the innovative practice" to the "organisation adopting the innovative practice") in a way that facilitates the latter's deployment of large-scale digitally-enabled innovative solutions for health and care delivery to the ageing population. This initiative therefore contributes to the European Scaling Up Strategy of the EIP on AHA.

 

This is a pilot support scheme that provides financial support to cover the travel and accommodation of experts from the "adopting organisation" to the "originator organisation" or vice-versa.

 

It will also cover expenses related to the "hosting" (such as transport within the region) incurred by hosting meetings etc. It will not cover fees for professional services (consulting, advisory services, moderation services etc.) and will not include the acquisition of products and services from third parties that do not fall within the meaning of travel, accommodation and meeting expenses.

 

The total maximum amount to be claimed in expenses is capped at € 5,000 per twinning action. There can only be 1 hosting organisation for the twinning (which could be either the transferring organisation or the adopting organisation). Irrespective of the number of "adopting" organisations involved in the twinning action the maximum amount is capped at € 5,000 per twinning action.

 

Twinning applications from regions from the same Member State are also eligible.
