AGE‑WELL and Canadian Frailty Network

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on December 19, 2022 in Announcements

Healthy Aging Canada (HAC) is a new collaborative initiative of AGE-WELL and the Canadian Frailty Network.

Under the new HAC research collaborative, the 2023 Catalyst Funding Program in Healthy Aging is being launched to support innovative one-year research projects with a focus on technology-enabled solutions or novel technologies that support healthy aging across the older adult life course, through to end of life. Projects may consider complementary social and healthcare innovations (e.g., new community programs, new service-delivery models, policy recommendations, and prevention strategies) related to the technology-enabled solution.  

The 2023 Catalyst Funding Program in Healthy Aging aims to identify and support emerging research in technology-enabled healthy aging, foster networking and collaboration, and build capacity in aging innovation research in Canada. It is expected that small-scale projects funded through this call will provide a foundation for future larger research projects or funding applications. 

This funding opportunity is open to researchers based at Canadian research institutions that are eligible to hold Tri-Council funding (see Eligibility requirements in full funding announcement). Current or prior affiliation with either AGE-WELL or CFN is not required.
