Everyday Technologies for Alzheimer Care Grant Program

Everyday Technologies for Alzheimer Care, a cooperative research initiative between The Alzheimer’s Association and Intel Corporation, seeks proposals having to do with personalized diagnostics, preventative tools, and/or interventions for adults coping with the spectrum of cognitive aging and neurodegenerative disease, particularly Alzheimer’s disease.

Submissions should be for groundbreaking studies on emerging information and communication technologies as well as their clinical and social implications.  Strongest consideration will be given to innovative ideas rather than more evolutionary incremental research.  Originality of the study is more important than extensive evidence for why it is a logical next step in a research program.

The association anticipates funding two awards under this program. Each award is limited to a total of $200,000 (direct and indirect costs) for up to three years. Requests in any given year may not exceed $90,000 (direct and indirect costs). Indirect costs are capped at 10 percent.

The application deadline is February 1, 2013.  Link to Complete RFP
