The purpose of the Knowledge Translation and Exchange (KTE) Accelerator Grants program, co-funded by Alzheimer Society of Canada (ASC) and Brain Canada Foundation (Brain Canada), is to help accelerate the dissemination of scientific findings on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to various audiences beyond academic researchers. 

KTE Accelerator Grants are designed to stimulate innovative, out-of-the-box ideas that ensure research translates into implementation and eventually impact. These grants provide researchers and trainees with the funding needed to develop KTE products relevant to their work in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. 

Available to: 

• Current and past Alzheimer Society Research Program (ASRP) grant and award recipients. 

• Current and past recipients of a Brain Canada-funded grant focused on Alzheimer’s disease and/or other dementias research. 

• Principal Investigators that are current members of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA) 

ASC and Brain Canada have allocated $200,000 to this program. Grants are for a term of one (1) year but are eligible for an additional two-year extension for a total of up to three (3) years. Total grant amounts are flexible to accommodate the budgets required to support a broad range of KTE plans. The minimum budget allowed is $5,000 and the total budget cannot surpass $100,000. The topic must be focused on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
