European Commission Call for Proposals for Social Policy Experimentations

Based on the PROGRESS programme and on the European Platform Against Poverty and Social Exclusion, "This call for proposals on social policy experimentations intends to improve the quality and effectiveness of social policies and to facilitate their adaptation to new social needs and societal challenges. Through this call, PROGRESS countries embarking on welfare reforms are offered financial support to experiment envisaged policy changes and reforms before implementing them, if successful, on a wider scale. [...] This call offers to applicants the possibility to develop social policy experiments according to the following two dimensions:

- Design of a potentially relevant policy intervention [...]
- Design of the evaluation method [...]
Among the three themes proposed, is included: "Promotion of active and healthy ageing, which is underpinned by cross-sectoral actions aiming, among others, at improving the health status and the quality of life, supporting the sustainability and efficiency of health care and social services systems, ensuring decent working conditions and prolonging working lives, as well as at promoting social inclusion and independent living for all citizens, with a particular focus on older people, as outlined in the Strategic Implementation Plan of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing."
