Two Proposals for Horizon 2020

April 10, 2017 in Projekte, Proposal, Verein by guenther_michels

As mentioned before we have submitted two proposals in the framework of the HORIZON 2020 call of the European Commission (https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/). Together with partners from 5 countries we have covered two topics: one in the area of „Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) prevention and management of mental disorders“ and another as an “Innovation Action” as an “International partnership building in low and middle income countries”. The first project proposal addresses mental health care in Ghana and Zambia – an area in which progress is desperately needed in view of the totally insufficient availability and quality of health care services for persons with mental disorders and the widespread total lack of awareness about causes and proper treatment of mental health issues such as depression and schizophrenia. In the framework of this call, we are “Exploring the role of ICT to implement mental health education for frontline health workers in Africa”. In a second call in the area of “Information and Technology”, we address “Smart Learning Solutions for Low-resource Environments”. In this call we propose to implement up to 20 so-called Campus W-LANs in up to 20 training institutions throughout Ghana. The proposals were submitted on 11 April and 25 April 2017, respectively, with evaluation results expected during July this year.
