COVID-X, a unique acceleration program funded by the European Union as part of the response plan to defeat COVID-19 through the power of data, has launched Open Call #1 for European Tech Companies with outstanding Data Technology solutions that can overcome COVID-19 clinical challenges and save lives. This Open Call is also addressed for healthcare providers dealing with coronavirus patients and validating the solutions in real care environments.
Funding & requirements
COVID-X will grant EU companies [Single Players] with 100K€ in direct funding to validate their data solutions in one of our clinical partners from Italy, Spain or Sweden. If your company already brings a Healthcare Provider that can validate the solution, the financial support will go up to 150K€ [Team Players].
The solutions should address challenges related to diagnosis, prognosis or follow-up of COVID-19 patients and need to meet some readiness requirements (TRL7+ and CE marking).
Selected companies will join the Acceleration Program to boost a quick market uptake. The plan of action will include technical support, ethical validation, and business coaching. In addition, participants will have access to the COVID-X Sandbox, a one-stop platform to exploit COVID-19 data sources, incorporating general information on data silos, as well as the integration, visualization, and exploratory analysis for easy understanding.
