The Davos Alzheimer’s Collaborative (DAC) was initiated by The World Economic Forum (WEF) and The Global CEO Initiative on Alzheimer’s Disease and launched January of this year. DAC is orchestrating an ambitious global effort to combat the Alzheimer’s disease challenge by linking, scaling, and building on existing efforts across every sector mission through three key initiatives: Global Cohort Development, Global Clinical Trial Platform and Healthcare System Preparedness.
The funding opportunity is part of the Healthcare System Preparedness initiative, and the team has issued a request for grant proposals to support innovators that implement and evaluate a solution that increases rates of cognitive assessment for older adults – and ultimately improve detection of Alzheimer’s disease in healthcare systems worldwide.
DAC’s intention is to award up to $2M USD to approximately 3-5 innovators in Spring of 2022. The deadline for the initial submission, a brief concept paper, is December 1, 2021. Candidates selected to move forward will be asked to provide a full proposal following the review of the concept paper. These candidates will be notified mid-January.
