Flexibility on solutions, but doggedness on a problem, helps in the Healthy Ageing Catalyst Awards
- This is a scheme that particularly values input from social sciences and arts and humanities
- Identifying a genuine problem for healthy ageing first and remain flexible regarding your proposed solution
- Ensure the problem you identify is important for ageing people, don’t just assume so
- Demonstrate ambition and motivation at all stages of the process
Established by UK Research and Innovation and venture capitalists Zinc in 2020, UKRI’s Healthy Ageing Catalyst Awards, which are returning for a fourth annual call this year, will open to applications on 31 January, with a deadline of 21 February.
