INNOVATE TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD!



Do you have a solution beyond pharmaceuticals, to improve the quality of life of sensory-disabled individuals and people with restricted access to medical care? Then this challenge is for you!

Astellas is committed to creating a world where individuals can lead mentally and physically healthy lives by providing adequate healthcare solutions other than traditional medication, through the Rx+® business. Unfortunately, optimal solutions do not always exist, particularly for sensory-disabled people and individuals with restricted access to medicine. 

This is where you have a role to play! 

If you have any idea or solution which could help sensory-disabled people or improve access to medical care for individuals who are limited due to geographical, financial, physical restrictions or for whom current medical solutions are insufficient, we would love to hear from you! Astellas is looking for Health-tech or cross-industry solutions which can free patients from daily life problems caused by diseases and disabilities.

Take your solution to the next level by participating in this challenge! You stand a chance of winning financial support for a Proof of Concept to develop your project with the support of Astellas, a global and innovative pharmaceutical company.

 

Join the challenge now by clicking "Participate" and be a game-changer for individuals in need of new healthcare-related solutions!
