European tech initiative zooms in on digital biomarkers and mental health

EIT Health focus­ing on dig­i­tal bio­mark­ers and men­tal & brain health (Health Europa):

Announc­ing the sec­ond year of their inno­va­tion pro­gramme, Wild Card, EIT Health, a net­work of best-in-class inno­va­tors backed by the EU, are look­ing to chal­lenge tal­ent to deliv­er real solu­tions to the health­care mar­ket. This year, Wild Card will focus on two chal­lenges: men­tal and brain health and dig­i­tal bio­mark­ers in diag­nos­tics … the EIT Health Wild Card pro­gramme appli­ca­tion win­dow is open until 10 Feb­ru­ary 2019.

Look­ing at two major key issues that impact cit­i­zens’ health in Europe, this year’s hope­ful can­di­dates must present their expe­ri­ence, skills and ideas to address one of two ques­tions:

  • Men­tal and brain health – How to improve pre­dic­tion, diag­no­sis and treat­ment to fight men­tal dis­or­ders and strength­en brain health?
  • Dig­i­tal bio­mark­ers – How to improve ear­ly diag­nos­tics with the appli­ca­tion of dig­i­tal bio­mark­ers?

The Program:

Wild Card is a call to action for Europe’s inno­va­tors and game-chang­ers to solve the biggest health­care chal­lenges of our time.

Descrip­tion: We build great com­pa­nies to shift the par­a­digm in chal­lenge areas and make impact for patients. Each year the Wild Card pro­gramme address­es two Euro­pean health­care chal­lenges. Our job is to find the right peo­ple to tack­le them—yours is to solve them. This year, we’re ask­ing inno­va­tors to find solu­tions to MENTAL AND BRAIN HEALTH and DIGITAL BIOMARKERS.
