The national a2 Pilot Awards competition is hosted annually by the a2 Collective and funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health, through the Artificial Intelligence and Technology Collaboratories (AITC) for Aging Research program. NIA has earmarked $40 million to fund technology demonstration projects that utilize artificial intelligence (AI) approaches and technology to improve care and health outcomes for older Americans, including persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (AD/ADRD), and their caregivers.

The third annual a2 Pilot Awards competition is accepting applications from May 1 to July 31, 2023 (5 p.m. ET). To view projects selected for award in past competitions, visit the Awardees page.
