The eCare call for tenders is now open, with up to €3,920,000 for disruptive digital solutions for the prevention and comprehensive management of frailty in older adults. The call will remain open until 15 September 2021 and the buyers’ group will announce the awarded contracts on 16 November 2021 with the publication of the contract award notice. Eight suppliers are expected to be awarded to start the solution design in Phase 1.
Frailty is the challenge that needs to be tackled, which is an age-related state affecting one out of four adults over 85 years in Europe. It is a dynamic process that leads to a spiral of decline that increases the risk of geriatric syndromes. Ageing from now on should be healthy, active and technologically connected.
