For the 7th consecutive year, Universal Biotech launches the call for proposal to valorise the most innovative projects in the healthcare industry.
Since, the Innovation Prize has become a reference in stimulating innovation in the field of Life Sciences worldwide.
The prize benefits from the support of public organizations (National Research Agency, Institute Pasteur, Institute Karolinska), the biotech industry (Ipsen, Myriad Genetics), pharmaceuticals (Servier, GlaxoSmithKline, Pierre Fabre, Mayoly Spindler) and a consulting agency for intellectual property (Cabinet De Gaulle Fleurance and associates).
The Innovation Prize awards young start-ups (< 8 years) and academic research groups working on projects concerning drugs, medical devices, medical technologies and e-health solutions. Last year, it welcomed more than 200 applications from more than 30 countries. Two laureates were rewarded each with the overall prize of €30 000, including cash and consulting services provided by Universal Biotech and its partners.
The call for proposal of the Innovation Prize 2015 will open February 2 and will end April 22, 2015. Through our adapted ‘Open Innovation Management’ platform, participants will be able to easily submit their project. The rewarding ceremony will take place during the Innovation Days 2015, October 5.
The Innovation Prize is a Life Science key event and an international showcase for companies and innovative projects. Participating in the prize will enlarge your project’s visibility and offers you a unique change to profit from a high-quality feedback. Therefore, the Innovation Prize acts as a stepping stone for your project development.
