The world is facing increasing healthcare challenges. There is a growing, ageing population and an increasing burden of disease. Healthcare costs are rising. Current models of healthcare provision are no longer sustainable in the long term. The need to provide efficient and effective healthcare has never been more important.
The aim of this competition is to develop innovative healthcare technologies and processes that will help with:
disease prevention and proactive management of health and chronic conditions
earlier and better detection and diagnosis of disease leading to better patient outcomes
tailored treatments that either change the underlying disease or offer potential cures
The competition has 2 awards:
early-stage awards - for testing a well-developed concept and showing its effectiveness in a relevant environment
feasibility studies - for exploring and testing the commercial potential of early-stage ideas
