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.
