The Longitude Prize on Dementia partners with the Social Tech Trust

The Longitude Prize on Dementia*, that is driving the creation of personalised, technology-based tools that are co-created with people living with dementia, have announced a partnership with social innovation charity Social Tech Trust. 

This partnership will support The Longitude Prize on Dementia by enabling their 24 International Discovery Award Teams to develop working prototypes of new assistive technologies to help people living with dementia remain independent for longer. 

Ruth Neale, Programme Manager for the Longitude Prize on Dementia at Challenge Works said: 

“We’re excited to join forces with Social Tech Trust to provide semi-finalists in the Longitude Prize on Dementia with tailored technical and data support to develop their ideas into prototypes. The team at Social Tech Trust will provide a bespoke technology support package for our international cohort to drive high-quality tech products for the next stage of the competition. This is one element in the programme of capacity-building support that is being provided to teams in the next 12 months.”
