Open Accelerator, an international programme supporting digital healthcare technologies that improve patient experience, has launched its 2020 ‘Call for Solutions’.
Created by Zcube, the research venture of Italian pharmaceutical company Zambon, the accelerator focuses on four key areas: ‘digital prevention, monitoring and therapeutics’, ‘digital diagnostics’, ‘virtual health’ and ‘clinical trials digitalisation’. Successful applicants will take part in a four-week programme, and could win up to EUR €100,000 seed investment for their project. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, a ‘Special Challenge’ will be dedicated to new forms of communication in healthcare.
Elena Zambon, creator of the programme said: “Digital solutions have never been such a vital support for patients and caregivers as they have at this time.
“This programme is yet another way in which we are pursuing with conviction our commitment to improving patients’ lives, integrating cure and care with a multidisciplinary approach.”
