This Guidebook aims to introduce – to RDI stakeholders in the EU and in 5 Strategic Partner Countries (Canada, China, Japan, South Korea, and the USA) – the funding schemes that are supporting international cooperation in Digital Health and AHA (Active and Healthy Ageing), for the time being, and for the next future. Starting from the background findings of D2.4, the Guidebook for RDI stakeholders focuses on international cooperation opportunities by offering two reading options: a first part dedicated to RDI stakeholders from the 5 Strategic Partner Countries (providing information on relevant programmes and policies in the EU which are open to international cooperation); a second part dedicated to RDI stakeholders from the EU (providing information on relevant programmes and policies in Canada, China, Japan, South Korea, and the USA, which are open to international cooperation). An introduction on the R&I landscape, especially around Digital Health and AHA, is provided for each country or region, in order to better contextualize the information on policies and programmes. Boxes and graphic highlights help to better orient the RDI stakeholders and bring to their attention some key aspects that may allow them to find the most suitable opportunity for international cooperation. This technical deliverable will be updated and restyled in an even more user-friendly guide for researchers and innovators that will soon follow as a separate document freely available online.

Updates on opportunities for researchers and innovators from IDIH Strategic Partner Countries under the EU Funding Programme, as well as opportunities for EU researchers and innovators under the Funding Programmes of IDIH Strategic Cooperation Countries (Canada, China, Japan, South Korea, and the USA), are collected in two separated Annexes to the Guidebook.
