As part of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) is accepting applications for the 2022 cycle of its U.S.-based Catalyst Awards. Up to 25 innovators will each receive a cash prize of $50,000 plus travel costs to attend the annual Global Innovator Summit in 2023
To help address the world’s rapidly aging population, the NAM launched the Healthy Longevity Global Competition: a three-phase awards program designed to identify and support bold, innovative, and potentially breakthrough ideas to improve health as people age. The Catalyst Awards reward exciting new or early-stage projects that have the potential to advance the field of healthy longevity and extend the human healthspan—in turn allowing individuals to live more enriching lives and stay active in their communities, families, and the workforce well into their later years.
Eligible projects aim to improve the mental, physical, or social health and well-being of individuals and can focus on any stage of life, as long as they ultimately promote health for people as they age.
US-based individuals and teams from all fields, backgrounds, industries, and specialties are encouraged to complete the simple 2-page application to be considered for a $50,000 prize
. In addition to the winners, all applicants advancing to the final stages of the Catalyst Award review process are automatically considered for subsequent funding in the form of an Accelerator Award, the second phase of the Global Competition, worth $150,000 to more than $1 million USD.
