The National Innovation Challenge Programme Office will be conducting a virtual public briefing on the new Grant Call on Caregiving Ecosystem, which will be launched on 6 April under the National Innovation Challenge (NIC) on Active and Confident Ageing.
The aim of the grant call is to catalyse multi-disciplinary translational research and innovation to achieve sustainable caregiving in the community setting, whilst addressing the current and future trends of caregiving in Singapore. This ought to address the needs of caregivers and care recipients and translate to new care models and intervention programmes that can be implemented nationally to strengthen the caregiving ecosystem, with outcomes that are effective and help lower costs at the systems level. Technology should serve as a key enabler for the proposed solutions/interventions to enhance their impact and scalability. Teams representing public and private entities and institutes of higher learning (IHLs) are welcome to apply. While there is no restriction on the nationality of members in the project team, the entity represented must be legally registered in Singapore. Consortiums with Singapore-registered entities are also eligible to apply.RegistrationPlease register for the briefing via the link below by Thursday, 1 April 2021, 12.00pm.
