INNOLABS 1ST Open Call for Innovative Health Projects

Here we are! Just arrived at one of the core actions of our project. We are glad to announce that INNOLABS 1st Open Call has been officially launched on the 15th of June!

If you are a small or medium enterprise (SME) bringing solutions to mHealth, ageing populations or personalized healthcare, and you are ambitious enough to take part in the next healthcare revolution, then…we are looking for you!

You can submit your project proposal until the 30th of September, 2017.

We expect to receive applications addressing challenging and crucial health care issues, by adopting a cross-sectoral approach, taking into account key sectors such as ICT, Biotech and the role of end users as well.


The 25 best projects will be selected to enrol into a non-residential Acceleration Programme where each team will obtain support worth up to 50,000€. The next 25 finalist projects will receive support worth up to 10,000€. A more detailed information about the support distribution is available on the Open Call website.

The Acceleration Programme will last 9 months, from December 2017 to August 2018, and 5 projects will be allowed, by motivated request, to enter the Fast Lane Acceleration, receiving the same support but in 3 months.

If you are willing to apply, consider that:

  • Applications must be submitted by teams led by an SME.
  • Teams must include at least 2 different sectors of the value chain (ICT, BIO, Medical and/or Health).
  • Teams have to address one of the defined Open Call Challenges.

You can check all the details, including how your team can get extra points here.

Once the aforementioned requirements are met, you need to register on INNOLABS website (or log in with your email and password if you have already registered) and submit the following documents in the corresponding Open Call section:

  • Project Proposal of 10 pages maximum.
  • Lean Canvas annexed to the proposal.

Don’t be scared by this load of information. Everything you need to know, all the documents and templates related to INNOLABS 1st Open Call can be found here. We look forward to your project proposals!

For this Open Call, we are also looking for expert evaluators that will be part of the team in charge of evaluating the received project proposals. Those who are interested in this role can register on the Call for Experts website section.

But that's not all! We also have opportunities for service providers!If this is your case, you should get in touch with one of the INNOLABS consortium members to see whether you fit the needs.
