The Longitude Prize on Dementia aims to drive the creation of personalised, technology-based tools that are co-created with people living with the early stages of dementia, helping them live independent, more fulfilled lives so they are able to do the things they enjoy.
26 Jan 2023
Grantees at both the Discovery Award and Finalist stages will have access to tailored capacity development support and a package of tools to help develop their solutions. This will include working with a suite of subject matter experts.
Supported by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), finalists will participate in an independent study to evaluate the effects of their technologies on the lives of people affected by dementia. The evaluation will look at the processes of co-design and innovation.
Grants of £80,000 will be provided to 23 Discovery Awardees to support the development and validation of their solutions.
Grants of £300,000 will be provided to 5 Finalists to support the development and validation of their solutions.
1 winner will be selected to receive a £1,000,000 grant. The winning solution selected will be a digital device or service designed for use by people living with dementia as the primary users.
