Richard Cooper, Head of Digital at AXA PPP healthcare, says:
“For a fifth year, AXA Health Tech & You has been driving forward health innovation and discovering technologies that make the lives of consumers and their families better by helping with common health needs, such as sleep problems and concerns about mental health in children.
“We are also proud to reocgnise both early stage entrepreneurs and later stage innovators who are the talent and energy behind these technologies, through the Innovation and Excellence categories. We formed the AXA Health Tech & You Expert Group who have created a set of Core Values, embracing human-centredness, inclusivity, transparency and trustworthiness. The Expert Group have helped shape and steer these categories and we are excited to see the variety and quality of shortlisted entries coming through.
“As we look forward to announcing the winners at the AXA Health Tech & You Awards Ceremony next month, it is good to see an increase in finalists from all over Europe and the rest of the world, showing that health technology is growing on a global scale.”
The categories for this year’s AXA Health Tech & You Awards programme have had their own entry and judging approach. Each category has had its own bespoke judging panel including AXA Health Tech & You Expert Group members, representatives of AXA PPP healthcare medical team and category partners.
The winner of each category will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 22nd May at The Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the City of London. Previous winners and finalists have benefited through increased awareness, industry partnerships (including with AXA PPP healthcare) and funding opportunities.
There will be a Media Networking Breakfast on the morning of Wednesday 22nd May from 09.00 - 11.00 at The Merchant Taylors’ Hall providing an opportunity to meet the finalists and view their shortlisted innovations. If you would like to attend, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
