On October 11, 2018 at the DTU High Tech Summit, one of 15 high tech ideas stands the chance of winning 100 days incubation at LEO Innovation Lab in Copenhagen City with access to relevant support functions as well as a cash prize of 10,000 EUR.
There are two challenges – see the details below.
All initial entries must be submitted no later than August 31th to https://leoilab.typeform.com/to/thsXPG with the name of your idea starting with “HTS”.
End of August the top 15 best solutions will be selected and have an opportunity to be in dialogue about their idea with senior specialists at LEO innovation Lab in order to mature it. After a second and final application September 15th, the 5 best ideas will be chosen to pitch in front of an inquisitive and curious team of people during DTU High Tech Summit, and one solution may be chosen as a winner of the prestigious prize.
Challenge ”Opportunity of Digital Data in Healthcare”
We collect healthcare data that contribute to our established understanding of diseases. Many diseases are not fully understood with the current knowledge – hence treatment algorithms may lead to imprecise treatment or even over-treatment.
One solution to these highly important problems may lie in collection of digital data, either passive (from e.g. the phone) or active from wearables. A solution collecting these data combined with expertise in data analysis, data science, and artificial intelligence could contribute to a better disease understanding.
We are in particular looking for solutions that may help people with a chronic skin disease.
Challenge ”Opportunity of Centralizing Clinical Trials”
In drug and medical device development we perform clinical studies to confirm if a solution is safe and efficacious. We wish to improve our execution of these studies to the benefit of patients.
One solution could be to make the whole clinical trial process digital by centralizing it to one site, allowing more patients to join remotely (or decentralized). For inspiration please look here (https://blog.andreacoravos.com/software-enabled-clinical-trials-8da53f4cd27).
We have launched one solution, https://studiesandme.com/, and are currently looking at several more, and are keen to see what else can be done to improve the way we do clinical studies today in digital way.
We look forward to receive entries.
