Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking candidates to apply to the LifeArc COVID-19 FundLifeArc has made available an initial £10M for the identification of therapeutics that can be rapidly deployed to treat COVID-19. The aim is to run trials in patients during the current epidemic. It is anticipated that applications will be for funding to repurpose one or more drugs that are generic, already licensed, or are in late stage development for another indication.
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking Collaborators for COVID-19 Response (By AireHealth)AireHealth is ready to enter the ring and help where we can in support of our national effort to stem the impacts of the novel CoronaVirus. We’d like to see our FDA cleared nebulizer make an impact, particularly for the patients we already serve - those with chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD. We’re enhancing our production and distribution strategies to include delivery of COVIDCare Kits that package a 7-day disposable supply for our nebulizer. We are also working on a retooled version of our AireHealth mobile app to track COVID-19 symptoms and communicate status to caregivers and physicians as required.
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking biologists, data scientists, students or experts with innovations to address issues of the COVID-19 pandemicCOVID-19 Open Innovation Challenge Roche Canada is committed to working in partnership with our Canadian community to develop solutions to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic is impacting the daily lives of everyone around the world. We are isolated within our communities, we are exceeding the capacity of our health systems, and we are struggling to keep pace with the rapidness of the outbreak. But together, we can get through this. And together, we can innovate to make a difference. Roche Canada is committed to working in partnership with our Canadian community to develop solutions to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. To move this forward, we have established the Roche Canada COVID-19 Innovation Challenge - a funding program to support our community in bringing forward innovative ideas to address some of the biggest challenges and issues of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you are a biologist, data scientist, student, patient, or someone with an innovative mind and wants to make a difference, we need you! Some examples of these challenges that need to be addressed include: • How can we better understand disease biology, pathophysiology, transmission, etc.? • How can we address our health system capacity issues? • How do we enhance real-time information sharing? • How will we effectively manage remote and rural populations (eg. remote indigenous populations)? • How can we increase the education and awareness and promote healthy practices? • How can we increase the participation and effectiveness of social/physical distancing? • How can we manage productivity while distancing and isolating ourselves?
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking developers to build open-source solutions to make an immediate and lasting impact on Covid-19 outbreakCOVID-19: What can you do to help now? The 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge is expanding its focus to tackle the effects of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. Technology solutions can help seize and reduce the impact this pandemic has on our daily lives. Now is the time to unite and act swiftly. We have the tools. You have the talent. Use these reference materials and technical resources to understand the problems communities face during a pandemic and where your code can have the greatest impact.
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking engineers, innovators, designers, and makers to produce rapidly deployable mechanical ventilatorsThe rate of COVID-19 spread and peak is influenced by social separation, good hygiene, and adequate quarantining of infected individuals. The goal of the CoVent-19 Challenge is to increase the capacity of hospitals to provide mechanical ventilation. Our answer will be a rapidly deployable ventilation solution that we can use to close the gap between those in need and our actual resources in settings around the world. Founded by residents at Massachusetts General Hospital, the CoVent-19 Challenge will be a completely virtual open moonshot competition hosted on GrabCAD to develop a rapidly deployable mechanical ventilation solution. We appreciate all of the advice and buzz that we are hearing from all parts of our global community.
