The Technology Evaluation in Elderly Network (TVN) is inviting researchers and their teams to participate in the third Catalyst Grant Program competition.

The Catalyst Grant Program supports scalable research studies including pilot studies, feasibility studies, translational studies, and novel and innovative approaches aligned with TVN research priorities and themes. Successful Catalyst projects may be suitable for future larger scale TVN funding opportunities.

The Catalyst Grant Program funds projects of up to one year in length and up to $100,000 (or possibly up to $150,000 for projects of exceptional merit.)  Proponents must secure and demonstrate proof of 50 per cent funding match for this competition.

TVN is Canada's network for frail elderly care solutions. Funded in part by the Government of Canada through the Networks of Centres of Excellence, they partner with healthcare providers, universities, the private sector and community agencies to support research, study medical technologies, share knowledge and train care professionals to improve frail elderly care practices and outcomes across all settings of care. Recognizing that frail elderly Canadians may be nearing the end of life, TVN is dedicated to their advance care planning and end-of-life care.

Researchers should visit the TVN website to review eligibility requirements and application guidelines.
