A New Health Tech Award to recognise and promote your idea!

Are you a designer, academic, student, business, inventor or an individual /organisation with a clever idea around healthcare and technology? Does your idea need recognition and support?

The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design has partnered with the AXA PPP Health Tech & You Awards 2017 to support a brand new category called the Future Award. This looks for products, services, systems or devices that address future health challenges in a narrative, imaginative and human-centred way. Highly innovative entries are encouraged that push the boundaries of health tech, providing a clear vision as to how people’s lives can be supported in new and interesting ways.

Even if your innovation is still in concept, R&D, funding or testing phase, we would still like to hear from you. Winning this Award offers publicity and connections that could help launch your idea – including exhibition, advice and promotion at signature events. The Award is supported by AXA PPP Healthcare, the Design Museum in the UK and 2020health.

To enter, all you need is:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Social media handles and a link to your webpage
  • Short description on your health tech
  • Short video that brings your idea to life (maximum 3 minutes)

Deadline for entries: 16 January  2017. Awards take place in April 2017
