Are you a researcher or a clinician who has developed an innovative solution that could help to improve brain health or quality of life for older adults?

Do you want to work as part of a collaborative health team to test that innovation in a real-world setting with the aging population?

The Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) is reaching out to let you know that we’ve launched our Researcher-Clinician Partnership Program (RCP2).  This program is designed to support teams of clinicians and researchers collaborating to test, validate, refine and disseminate innovative advanced-stage products, services or health practices in aging and brain health in a real-world care setting. 

Through RCP2, CABHI will provide up to $500,000 (CAD) in funding per project to support those costs directly associated with the trial testing of an innovative solution at an advanced stage of development.   More than $2 million in total funding is available through this program!

We are seeking applicants with innovations that are aimed at finding solutions to specific care priorities that can help to support older adults living with dementia and their care partners, or solutions that are targeted at improving cognitive health in the aging population.  Apply today!  


Applying is easy, and can be completed in 3 simple steps:

Step 1:  Read the RCP2 Call for Innovations – Information Package for complete details about the application process, eligibility and selection criteria before submitting your application form.
