UKRI and Zinc have partnered to create a new way of applying for research awards. The UKRI Healthy Ageing Catalyst Awards offer £62,500 (fEC) and a proven programme of support from Zinc that allows entrepreneurial researchers to translate their research and create impact beyond academia.

This workshop is your introduction to this funding opportunity. It’s a hands-on chance for you to discover more about the Awards, the opportunities created by taking part in Zinc's programme of support, and how you can take an entrepreneurial approach to problem-solving and translating your research to make a difference to people in later life.

We are looking for researchers from across the academic spectrum to bring new perspectives to the Awards. Join us for one of the sessions to:

1. Hear from current and previous Awardees about the benefits of Zinc's programme of support for you and translating your research into impactful products and services.

2. Learn through an interactive session how to take an entrepreneurial, problem-led approach to improve the quality of later life.

3. Discover how to create a strong expression of interest for the Awards and meet fellow researchers interested in creating impact beyond academia.


Joining the workshop will prepare you for the Awards’ application process. Those applying for the awards are strongly recommended to attend.

Sign up today to give yourself an opportunity to access this new funding and expand your perspective on your research.
