CIHR - Active and Assisted Living Joint Program

This funding opportunity lies within the scope of the International component of CIHR's eHealth Innovations Initiative (eHII). The Active and Assisted Living Programme (AAL) provides Canada with an established and successful mechanism to foster international collaborations and offers the opportunity to engage diverse communities in generating transformative eHealth solutions.

By funding the development of packages integrating different solutions, the AAL Programme aims to create evidence of improved quality of life, of perceived added value by end-users, of usefulness and of effectiveness of the solutions, as well as of their reliability, security and financial viability, including positive business cases for potential payers.

Impact will be assessed via:

  1. Expected impact on quality of life
  2. Expected impact on the market

For a complete description of these expectations, please refer to the Active and Assisted Living website.
