Are you an early career researcher with an interest in dementia?

Would you like the chance to collaborate, innovate and compete?

Race Against Dementia and the DEMON Network, in partnership with Cranfield University, are inviting applications to participate in our Innovation Accelerator. This unique event will bring together teams of early career dementia scientists and similar stage experts from the motorsport industry, create diversity of thinking and break down ‘silos’ that currently exist between institutions and disciplines.

You will have the opportunity to think big and outside the box, develop ambitious ideas and learn from experts in the motorsports industry and other commercial enterprises with track records of rapid progress and innovation.

Ultimately, you will pitch to secure a hypothetical £20k seed funding prize. This competitive workshop will prepare you as an innovator to create successful applications for dementia research funding. It is also an opportunity to network and develop collaborative relationships.

There are limited places available. Participation is free, and successful applicants will automatically be registered to attend the Dementia Research Meets Motorsports Summit that will also take place on 6 July 3-5.30pm.

The winning team will be announced at the beginning of the afternoon summit, with prizes presented by Sir Jackie Stewart.

This event is subject to Government and Cranfield University guidelines in place at the time of the event, and is subject to changes.
