Partnership Grants

Alzheimer’s Society

The Longitude Prize on Dementia.

The £4.3M Prize seeks to incentivise assistive technologies to help people diagnosed with dementia remain independent in their homes – an effective way to manage progression in those diagnosed. Other partners include Innovate UK, Challenge Works, AgeWell and Amazon Web Services. The four year partnership will consist of three rounds. In round one, 23 innovators will be selected, round two will involve five finalists and the overall winner will be awarded £1M. The programme has received support from dementia organisations in America and Canada. The Foundation, along with its funding, will also enable the innovators, finalists and the eventual winner to test their products with CareTech and consult with CareTech staff on real-world experience.
