Longitude Prize on Dementia

The Alzheimer's Society, Innovate UK and MRC have together announced a new £4.1m Longitude Prize on Dementia.

The Alzheimer's Society, Innovate UK and MRC have together announced a new £4.1m Longitude Prize on Dementia to change the lives of people living with Dementia.

Innovators will be challenged to develop technologies that learn about the lives of people with early-stage dementia, employing novel and emerging technologies to bridge cognitive gaps that develop as their condition progresses.

Over £3.1m in seed funding and grants will be awarded to innovators, with a £1m prize awarded to the winner of the Longitude Prize on Dementia in 2026.

Wider support has been funded to provide innovations with crucial insights and expertise, facilitating whatever they need to bring their ideas to life, including;

  • access to data
  • collaborations with people living with dementia and dementia organisations in the UK and around the world
  • advice on product design
  • user experience and business mentoring

The prize will be launched in September 2022
