Do you have access to an aging population interested in pilot testing some of the most promising innovations in the aging and brain health sector?
The Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI) invites interested seniors’ care and other health service organizations to submit an Expression of Interest to act as a trial partner site for its Industry Innovation Partnership Program (i2p2). Trial partners will have an opportunity to gain early access to new innovative solutions in the aging and brain health sector for testing and validation.
Note: Trial partners must be a seniors’ care or other health service organization in Canada, or a network partner of CC-ABHI in the United States. At least one of the project participants, either the applicant company or the trial partner site, must be located in Canada.
