Through the Transnational Access (TA) Programme, VITALISE project opens up 17 Living Lab Research Infrastructures located in 7 different countries to external researchers from multiple disciplines, so that they conduct their research studies for free. The applicants for Transnational Access may choose to work on their own projects or on one of the main research areas of the project, i.e., (i) Rehabilitation, (ii) Transitional care and (iii) Everyday living environments (see Joint Research Activities).
Transnational Access can be (i) fully in-person, (ii) partially remote (i.e., in-person access for a specific time period combined with remote access to the infrastructure’s facilities for the rest of the unit of access) or (iii) fully remote. Researchers may only apply for Transnational Access to institutions located in different countries from the organisation they represent. During in-person Transnational Access, researchers will receive financial support for travel subsistence and daily allowance, while there will be no refund during the remote period of access. Each Infrastructure has an estimated access time of 30 days (unit of access) for each project.

VITALISE brings together 8 Living Labs across Europe (Spain, Greece, Finland, Belgium, Hungary, Austria) and 1 outside Europe (Canada). A total of 17 Living Lab Research Infrastructures are open to European researchers for conducting their studies. As a first step please spend sometime to explore our Infrastructures and what they can offer.
Please bear in mind that some Living Labs have already reached their maximum capacity in the previous open calls. The following figure shows VITALISE Living Labs capacity for the 3rd open call.

The Joint Research Activities (JRAs) bring together researchers from different Living Labs in collaborative projects for three different domains in Living Lab Health and Wellbeing research, i.e.: (i) Rehabilitation, (ii) Transitional care and (iii) Everyday living environments. If you are interested you may apply to jointly conduct research studies with our consortium partners in these areas.
It is recommended to pay close attention to the Services, Technologies, Stakeholders Population and all the necessary information that affect the quality and outcomes of your research. Please note that you may apply for up to three (3) different Research Infrastructures. Please advise the link below to see how the infrastructures compare by means of services.
