Friday, January 17, 2014 Calling All PT Innovators – Innovation 2.0 Now Seeking Proposals APTA has opened its call for proposals from members interested in taking part in Innovation 2.0, a funding and mentoring program offering up to $150,000 to support new approaches to service delivery and payment. Members have until February 13 to complete the proposal process. Innovation 2.0 builds on the success of APTA's 2013 Innovation Summit by seeking out innovators who are connecting the dots from feasibility studies to meaningful outcomes and moving great ideas from small-scale use to wide applicability. Members interested in submitting a proposal should begin by visiting the Innovation 2.0 webpage. The webpage contains complete instructions, applicant requirements, a list of topics that will be considered, and a link to the proposal submission form. Proposals must be received by February 13. Winning applications will be announced on March 10. Successful applicants will attend a workshop May 8-9 to discuss their projects and receive feedback from researchers and other clinicians. After the workshop, APTA will announce which finalists will receive funding and in-kind services from APTA to pursue their projects. An optional letter of intent is due to APTA by January 20. The letter should be sent to Innovation 2.0 staff and should include contact information for the project leader, name of the organization, and a brief description of the model. Applicants who do not send a letter of intent may still submit proposals. Questions? Need more details? Contact the Innovation 2.0 staff.
