In times of covid-19 and social distancing, it is more important than ever to boost collaborations and bring new healthcare ideas to the next level. Therefore, is organising a series of online Pitch and Match sessions where project owners are given the opportunity to present their ideas to other stakeholders and start-up collaborations.

Given the health, economical and societal impacts of the present covid-19 pandemic we need to ask ourselves the question “What digital & life sciences tools/services are needed to improve efficiency and support health and wellbeing in case of a next corona-like pandemic?" Therefore, in the coming weeks we will source your ideas and help you find partners to prevent, prepare or support the global community in the event of a new crisis.

We have selected 3 topics to get the series started, and we also warmly invite you to indicate topics you would like to have addressed in subsequent sessions.

  • Wednesday May 20 (9:30 - 12:00): Tracking systems for goods (reagents, assays, protective materials, spare parts, disposables, hospital bed availability), people (crowds, patients, health care professionals) and traffic (priority vehicles, triage towards different centers)
    ⇨  Send in your proposal before April 29 to
