Grant and funding for collaboration: Aging in Place Challenge program
The National Research Council Canada (NRC) invite researchers from the academic, public, not-for-profit, and private sectors as well as from Indigenous governments and organizations to express their interest in collaborating on the new Aging in Place Challenge Program. NRC is currently seeking collaborators with research expertise in human mobility pattern analysis, cognitive aging models, remote usability testing, technology adoption, online safety, emergency resiliency, and project ideas contributing to one of the focus areas listed above. They are also developing a panel of experts by experience, and invite older adults and caregivers who wish to participate on the panel to submit their interest.
Grant and contribution funding will be available through the NRC's National Program Office for eligible collaborators who offer complementary expertise. This may include contributions to collaborative R&D as well as equipment needed for research in fundamental areas.
