TORONTO, Aug. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) announced today the second round of funding available through its Industry Innovation Partnership Program (I2P2).

  • Caregiver support :   solutions that support caregivers (formal and informal) in providing care to older adults with dementia
  • Care coordination and navigation :   solutions that help older adults, caregivers and healthcare providers coordinate care and transitions for older adults with dementia
  • Cognitive health :   solutions focus on health promotion, prevention, early diagnostics, and slow progression of cognitive impairment for aging adults

"Ontario is taking a leadership role in Canada in advancing innovation in the aging and brain health sectors, and improving the lives of older adults and their caregivers. CABHI's focus on innovation aligns with the province's efforts to ensure Ontario's highly skilled workforce can compete globally through innovation," says Reza Moridi, Minister of Research, Innovation & Science.

"This program provides an opportunity for the seniors' care sector to take an active role in working with companies to shape and form innovative solutions that will impact the quality of life of the populations they serve," says Dr. William Reichman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Baycrest Health Sciences. "Baycrest is proud to lead the effort to bring a culture of innovation to our sector, thereby ensuring the most innovative aging and brain health solutions touch those who need it the most."

CABHI will provide 50 per cent of the project costs to a maximum of $500,000 CAD to the trial partner site to work with the company, to test and validate the company's product or service. Successful applicants will be required to co-invest 50 per cent of the project costs through cash and in-kind support.

All projects must be completed within a 12 to 18-month period. Eligible applicants must submit an expression of interest by 5 p.m. on October 16, 2017. Full details and selection criteria are available on the CABHI website.
