Call for Abstracts – Now Open

We are now accepting abstracts for innovations within the following competition streams:

  • Biomedical Innovation: The process of transforming scientific discoveries into novel therapies, better prognostics/diagnostics, vaccines, or devices that will improve patients’ lives; this may include, but is not limited to, drugs, screening techniques, therapies, and devices.
  • Social Innovation: A new approach for improving health that is more effective, efficient, equitable, or sustainable than current approaches; this may include, but is not limited to, improved access to care, policy development, health services delivery, interventions to advance the social determinants of health, or economic analysis.

Anyone can apply – we welcome all applications for either competition stream:

  • If you have competed in a previous W21C Innovation Academy and did not receive an award, you are welcome to apply again for the 2019 competition, provided there have been significant enhancements to your entry.
  • If you have previously competed in the W21C Innovation Academy and have been awarded funding, you are still eligible for this competition, but only for a distinctly new project.

Please refer to the full Call for Abstracts for competition and application information.

Application Deadline is July 24, 2019 (11:59 PM MDT)
