Co-Creation Labs / Accelerator
What is a Clinical Summit?
The CAMTech Clinical Summit brings together physicians, nurses, healthcare workers, government and public health experts to identify pressing clinical needs and best practices in RMNCH care. This event serves as a pivotal activity to drive affordable medical technology innovation, including a “Technology Showcase” to preview early-stage and newly-marketed technologies that have the potential to improve healthcare.
What is a Medtech Hack-a-thon?
CAMTech’s hack-a-thons crowd-source solutions for critical clinical challenges in LMICs and foster entrepreneurship in the medtech space. Medtech hack-a-thons are two-day events that bring together engineers, clinicians, entrepreneurs and end-users to develop disruptive innovations to improve health in LMICs. Hack-a-thons provide a platform for engineers, clinicians, entrepreneurs and end-users to come together to advance knowledge-sharing across disciplines and catalyze better innovations for resource-constrained settings.
What is the CAMTech 100k Innovation Award Program?
The CAMTech Innovation Awards are part of a growing portfolio of health technologies supported by CAMTech’s mission to build entrepreneurial capacity and accelerate medical technology innovation for LMICs. Awards provide one year of research, development and/or commercialization support to a research institution, NGO, or for-profit company. Through a competitive request for proposal process, CAMTech has generated a growing pipeline of technologies that have been evaluated across public health impact, technical innovation, and commercial viability.
What is an Accelerator?
CAMTech incubates medical technologies with targeted technical assistance to identify the fastest and most viable path to commercialization. For its portfolio technologies, CAMTech provides resources and identifies partners at critical stages of medtech development.
CAMTech Program Launches
CAMTech India: Technologies for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health (RMNCH)
CAMTech India is a public private partnership (PPP) designed to accelerate medical technology innovation in order to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) outcomes around preventable deaths in India (and other low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)). Sponsored by USAID India Mission, Bacca foundation and Omidyar Network, CAMTech at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Center for Global Health with will work with its partners in India to develop the most promising RMNCH technologies while building local entrepreneurial capacity in RMNCH medtech innovation in India.
CAMTech Uganda Co-Creation Lab
CAMTech is launching its first Co-Creation Lab in Uganda at Mbarara University of Science and Technology in 2014. This physical Co-Creation Lab will foster entrepreneurial activity, including innovation cafes, prototype development, accelerator program & clinical simulation/product testing. Future Co-Creation Labs both in India and USA are in discussion and will drive cross-pollination of ideas between India, Africa and USA.
$10K Innovation Prize for Global Pedestrian Safety
Letter of Intent (LOI) Submission Deadline: June 1, 2015 (5pm EST)
In collaboration with Anheuser-Busch InBev, CAMTech is calling for proposals for technologies that promise to improve road safety for pedestrians on a global scale. AB InBev will award a prize for $10,000 to help further the development of a technology or game-changing innovation that addresses pedestrian road safety. AB InBev will also offer up to an additional $5,000 in travel support for the winning team to travel to Silicon Valley to meet with incubators and venture capitalists for investment opportunities. Innovation Awards are part of a growing portfolio of health technologies supported by CAMTech’s mission to accelerate medical technology innovation globally.
MIT HackMed Grand Hack – CAMTech Global Health Technology Track
April 24–26, 2015 | MIT, Boston
Innovating a better tomorrow around global health trauma and pedestrian safety in the developing world.
Calling clinicians, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and end-users to develop innovative health technologies, processes and business models to co-create and catalyze innovation around global trauma care and pedestrian safety in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In 48 hours, teams will move from globally relevant ideas to prototypes that have the potential to transform healthcare around the world. Winning innovations from the hack-a-thon will be awarded funds, ongoing mentorship and access to LMICs networks by CAMTech.
