Current innovation projects
How does Alzheimer's Society innovate?
Our innovation team use 3 key approaches to deliver new solutions to improve lives of people affected by dementia.
1. Accelerator Programme
We want to speed up the time to develop the new service or product so that we can improve the lives of people affected by dementia quicker. These projects are led by engineers, innovators and designers. They are supported by:
- a grant of up to £100,000
- an Innovation buddy to guide them through the process of bringing their idea to life
The Accelerator programme is currently closed but we will be accepting applications for the next round of projects in June 2019.
2. Sprint Life projects
The Sprint Life projects follow the Learn, Investigate, Find and Experiment (LIFE) pathway. These projects are carried out over a period of 6 to 12 months and include both people affected by dementia and experts in the subject area to ensure a truly bespoke design specifically for dementia.
3. Partnership projects
We partner with companies and organisations that have specialist skills and knowledge to support and run innovation projects. If your organisation is interested in partnering with us, please contact our innovation team.
