AGE-WELL is excited to launch its 3rd Catalyst Funding Program to support innovative research projects aimed at generating, promoting or accelerating economic and social benefit in the field of technology and aging.
The Catalyst Funding Program represents the first-stage in AGE-WELL’s innovation funding stream. Catalyst grants will support early-stage, scalable research projects including pilot studies, feasibility studies and novel approaches that are aligned with AGE-WELL’s mission and vision. Projects must demonstrate strong potential for real-world impact.
It is expected that Catalyst projects will lead to new funded research initiatives, either as part of AGE-WELL or through other granting agencies. Projects funded by Catalyst grants may be suitable for future AGE-WELL investment as they progress along the innovation pipeline. To be eligible for continued funding through AGE-WELL, end-of-term deliverables must provide justification for continued funding either through a renewal of Catalyst funding or transfer to another AGE-WELL funding program (e.g. Core Research Program, Strategic Investment Program). See Project Deliverables and Potential for Continued Funding section below.
Award Value and Term
Up to $50,000 over 12 months. Can be renewed for one year, pending end-of-term review.
Application Deadline: March 23rd, 2018, 5:00 pm EST.
Application and Review Process:
Applications will be accepted through AGE-WELL’s Forum Research Portal.
