Health, Demographic Change and Well-being 1.8. Treating disease There is a need to support the improvement of cross-cutting support technologies for…. to develop improved medical and assistive devices and systems;……These improvements will facilitate the development of new, more efficient, effective and sustainable treatments for disease and for the management of disability. 1.9. Transferring knowledge to clinical practice and scalable innovation actions …….Similarly, support for the transfer of other types of interventions such as those related to independent living into real world environments will be provided. 1.12. Active ageing, independent and assisted living Multidisciplinary advanced and applied research and innovation with behavioural, gerontological, digital and other sciences is needed for cost effective user-friendly solutions for active, independent and assisted daily living (in the home, the workplace, etc.) for the ageing population and people with disabilities. 12Excerpts from Specific Programme, version 9 July, DS 1505/12
Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies ….. understand, analyse and develop social, economic and political inclusion, combat poverty, enhance human rights, digital inclusiveness, equality, solidarity and inter-cultural dynamics by supporting interdisciplinary research, indicators, technological advances, organisational solutions and new forms of collaboration and co-creation. 6.1.2 Trusted organisations, practices, services and policies that are necessary to build resilient, inclusive, participatory, open and creative societies in Europe, in particular taking into account migration, integration and demographic change Given the increasing socio-economic importance of digital inclusion, research and large-scale innovation actions will promote inclusive ICT solutions and the effective acquisition of digital skills leading to the empowerment of citizens and a competitive workforce. Emphasis will be given to new technological advances that will enable a radical improvement in personalisation, user-friendliness and accessibility through a better understanding of citizen, consumer and user behaviours and values, including persons with disabilities. This will require an "inclusion by design" research and innovation approach. 13Excerpts from Specific Programme, version 9 July, DS 1505/12

CER definition, (US) Federal Coordinating Council for CER• Comparative effectiveness research is the conduct and synthesis of research comparing the benefits and harms of different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor health conditions in “real world” settings. The purpose of this research is to improve health outcomes by developing and disseminating evidence-based information to patients, clinicians, and other decision-makers, responding to their expressed needs, about which interventions are most effective for which patients under specific circumstances.• To provide this information, comparative effectiveness research must assess a comprehensive array of health-related outcomes for diverse patient populations and subgroups.• Defined interventions compared may include medications, procedures, medical and assistive devices and technologies, diagnostic testing, behavioural change, and delivery system strategies.• This research necessitates the development, expansion, and use of a variety of data sources and methods to assess comparative effectiveness and actively disseminate the results.• The definition above is not meant to exclude randomized trials; however, these trials would need comparator arms other than placebo and be representative of populations seen in “real world” practice.
