Innovation Award

2 April 2019

The Innovation category recognises pioneers in early-stage start-ups for standalone solutions to help citizens take charge of their health and wellbeing, as well as smart applications that enrich the relationship between people and their carers (whether health professionals, friends or family). 
It’s been shaped through the advice of our Expert Working Group who are underpinned by Core Values, embracing human-centredness, inclusivity, transparency and trustworthiness.

We were looking for bold, transformative ideas that are original, break boundaries and change expectations of what we can all do to take charge of our health and wellbeing. Entries were judged on how the innovator has created a compelling and irresistible application. It also had to be tried and tested on a larger scale to demonstrate its potential value and impact in making a sustainable difference to people’s lives, as well as addressing significant unmet needs in society.
