Coming soon — Elevator Award for Innovation in Dementia

The primary aim of this award is to have a meaningful impact on the lives of people with dementia. We are seeking exciting ideas across all settings including homes, communities and health care settings. We welcome proposals at both local and national level. An application form will be available soon. An independent team of experts will evaluate all proposals and will decide on a shortlist of projects according to the evaluation criteria. Elevator will offer a €1000 award to the successful idea to assist the translation of the idea. More information will be available soon.
