Academia Sinica Catalyst Award Competition: Rules and Guidelines
Catalyst Awards will reward bold, new, potentially transformative ideas to improve the physical, mental, or social well-being for people as they age, and in a measurable and equitable way. Ideas could focus on any step in a lifespan, as long as it ultimately promotes health as people age.
