Please note that the questions marked as 'public' will be the basis of the information we use to promote your entry if you are selected as one of the 15 semi-finalists of the prize. All questions marked with an asterisk (*) are compulsory.

You can save a draft at any time and come back to your application later. The name and email address you entered to log in will be used as the lead contact details for your application. Once your application has been submitted you will receive a confirmation email. If not, please check your spam folder.

If you have any further questions or queries relating to the Challenge Prize that have not been answered in the FAQs and Terms and Conditions, please email smartageing@nesta.org.uk. 

The deadline for applications is 12:00 noon Brussels time on Friday 30 March 2018. The AAL Programme and its contractors cannot be held responsible for late entries caused by technical problems. 

This is the entry form for the Mobility Unlimited Challenge.

By completing this form, you are competing for a $500,000 Finalist Development Grant to create a prototype capable of user demonstrations and an accompanying business plan. Your entry will be assessed against the judging criteria.

Before you submit an entry, ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria. Also read the Innovator Handbook, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and the terms and conditions. When filling out the form, read the questions and the associated guidance.

If you have any further questions beyond the FAQs and Terms and Conditions, email mobilityunlimited@challenges.org.

The deadline for entries is 15 August 2018, at 23.59 BST.

Entries will be assessed based on their potential against the judging criteria. The entry form provides us with an overview of your idea and how you would create your prototype with the support of a Finalist Development Grant.

Please respond directly to the questions. Use concrete examples and/or evidence to back up your statements, wherever possible.

There are 4 sections in the entry form:

  1. Your Details - These details will be used for our records and to contact the team.

  2. Your Entry - This summarizes the idea behind your proposed device. You will be assessed on your entry.

  3. Your Development Proposal - This outlines the action plan for how will you use the Finalist Development Grant. You will be assessed on your development proposal.

  4. Program Evaluation Questions - These questions will be used for internal evaluation of the Challenge. You will NOT be assessed on these questions.

The Discovery Awards will support teams with great ideas and talent that might have little to no funding right now. If you require funding to help you develop and submit your entry form for a Finalist Development Grant, apply for a Discovery Award. Ten teams will be awarded a $50,000 Discovery Award.

Find out more information about the Discovery Awards in the Innovator Handbook. To apply for a Discovery Award you will need to complete a separate Discovery Award Application Form.

If your team is ready to enter the Mobility Unlimited Challenge, complete the Finalist Development Grant form below. Applying for a Discovery Award is optional and NOT a prerequisite.
