The University of Ghent is looking for innovative projects in the broad domain of healthcare applications to enter an award competition organised by the PRoF chair, held by prof. dr. R. Peleman. The laureates of this competition will be invited for the award ceremony chaired by former President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy, during an international symposium in Ghent.
The competition accepts all innovations created in the healthcare domain (medical, care, ageing society, etc.) and more specifically one of the following areas:
- new concepts or theories in healthcare models (medical, care, ageing society)
- new insights regarding healthcare infrastructure (architecture and/or equipment)
- innovating healthcare processes and/or procedures
- innovating healthcare products and/or services
The applicants need to submit a clear description of the realisation (at least at research proof-of-concept stage), how this innovation has an effect on the future healthcare system and the relevant stakeholders involved. The description must further explain how the innovation matches with the values of the PRoF consortium, which will be used as evaluation criteria by the interdisciplinary jury.
The competition targets all innovations that are in a late research phase (e.g. proof-of-concept) or early market phase (pilot phase, first market introduction).
Α winner will be selected out of the 5 laureates who will receive the PRoF award (with a value of 10.000 €).
