The overall strategic orientation for the 'Health, Demographic Change and Well-being' Work Programme 2016-2017 is 'promoting healthy ageing and personalised healthcare'. It directly links with what has been successfully initiated in the years 2014-2015. The programme will implement several research priorities: personalised medicine, rare diseases, human bio-monitoring, mental health, comparative effectiveness research, advanced technologies, e/m-health, robotics, patient empowerment, active and healthy ageing, data security, big data, valorisation, anti-microbial resistance, infectious diseases including vaccines, maternal and child health and the silver economy. In addition, Pilot 1 'Smart Living Environments for Ageing Well' of the focus area call on 'Internet of Things' is jointly implemented by the "Health, Demographic Change and Well-being" Societal Challenge and the "Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies Information and Communication Technologies" (ICT LEIT) (see topic IoT-01–2016: Large Scale Pilots in part 17 of the Work Programme). Those priorities will support the development of evidence-based health and care policies, resulting from scientific research data, ICT solutions and good practices in interventions improving efficiency and quality of health and care systems.
