The Hub for Social and Health Innovation (HiSS) is pleased to announce that the 1st Unwanted Loneliness Challenge Call is now open!

The HiSS is a public initiative promoted by the Terrassa Health Consortium with the support of the Department of Health and the Department of Social Rights. It was created with the aim of capturing and accelerating social and health innovation projects from all over the territory capable of transforming the Catalan health and social system. Their mission is to accompany these projects to maximize their chances of being implemented in the system and have a real impact on citizens. To achieve this, the 10 selected projects will receive a personalized support service and funding of up to €80,000 for a period of 10 months.

The call is open to all types of projects, whether they originate from the social or health sector, regardless of their nature: organizational model, technology-based, social or health interventions, etc. The only essential conditions are:

  • The project must demonstrate an impact on both the Catalan public social and health sectors.
  • The project must fit into the theme of the call, Unwanted Loneliness.
