Do you have an idea or solution that could improve brain health or quality of life for older adults?  Are you interested in taking that idea and turning it into a solution that could potentially be used in a healthcare setting?    

The Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI) may be able to help!

Join one of our live webinars on Thursday, September 22 or Tuesday, September 27 to learn more about how to submit a successful proposal to our Spark Program. This Program will provide up to $50,000 in funding per successful proposal to those point-of-care workers within the healthcare space who would like to further develop their grassroots concept or idea in the field of aging and brain health into a real-world application. In 2017, up to 10 projects that meet the eligibility and selection criteria will be funded.

Applying for funding is easy, but you’ll need to be quick! Applicants who have submitted their expression of interest by Monday, October 3, 2016 at 5 pm (EDT), must follow up by completing and submitting their full application form by 5 pm on October 28, 2016 (EDT).
