Healthy Ageing Grant
Every year, the Fit for Life Foundation awards grants of EUR 100,000 each (disbursed over 3 years) to 3-4 non-profit organizations or social enterprises that are pioneering projects to promote healthy ageing around the world. This multi-year support enables Laureates to steadily scale up their programs, while building public awareness of the importance of healthy aging for communities.
The mission and activities of the organization or initiative must directly address healthy ageing for older (65+ years) or middle-aged people (45+ years). The Fit for Life Foundation welcomes solutions relevant to:
- Physical fitness
- Exercise and sport
- Mental Health
- Mental well-being
- At-home care; Community support for older people
- Prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs)
- Other forms of preventative health support
How to apply for the healthy ageing grant (deadline: 15 February 2023)

Social Innovation Academy is the first fully online management training programme focusing exclusively on social innovation.
Why Social Innovation Academy? Social innovation has increasingly come to be perceived as the answer to the rising number of European societal challenges. While the European authorities, leading academics, policy experts, business people and activists agree that social innovation is the key to a better future for Europe and the world, it is extremely difficult for professionals to obtain high-quality training on what social innovation actually offers and, more importantly, how it can be done in practice.
The Social Innovation Academy is aiming to change this situation in Europe and beyond. If you are interested in keeping up with this project, you can subscribe to our newsletter, become one of our friends or follow us on social media (LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook). We welcome all requests for collaboration here.
