EIT Health’s Population Intelligence Lab offers support
Start-ups and SMEs can reap the benefits of the rich health data available in biobanks and other population health databases, and even get €10 000 worth of free access to various data sets, through a business plan competition organised by EIT Health’s Population Intelligence Lab (Pointlab) in an effort to highlight the hidden opportunities of big data sets.
Pointlab is encouraging entrepreneurs to submit business plans explaining how they plan to take advantage of the possibilities for using data to further their business goals.
The business plan judged to be the best by a panel of experts will win a voucher worth €10 000 toward obtaining the data they need. Applications are being accepted until 23 November 2018.
The competition will provide assistance to business that can use specific types of data or analyses to support their venture. It will also help to highlight the untapped opportunity that biobanks and other large datasets can offer to healthcare start-ups and SMEs.
The competition grew out of the 13-14 September Second Business in Biobanking and Population Health Data conference, hosted by EIT Health partners University Medical Center Groningen and University Groningen Center for Entrepreneurship, together with BiomarkerBay.
