Boston Pediatric Device Strategic Partner Challenge Kickoff

September 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Pediatric device development and evaluation has been recognized as a critical need to improve the lives and welfare of children with congenital and acquired illnesses. The numerous challenges faced by device developers and manufacturers have resulted in a large unmet need for pediatric devices.

The Boston Pediatric Device Strategic Partner Challenge seeks to support and advance innovative pediatric medical devices by providing Challenge winners a combination of up to $50,000 in funding per grant award, and/or mentorship and strategic support from Challenge co-hosts the Boston Pediatric Device Consortium and Boston Children’s Innovation & Digital Health Accelerator and leading medical device industry partners: Boston Scientific, CryoLife, Edwards Lifesciences, Health Advances, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, Smithwise and Ximedica.

Up to $250,000 will be awarded. Technologies for any medical device that serves the pediatric population are accepted, with a specific interest in five focus areas: cardiovascular/endovascular, asthma, obesity, sepsis and general pediatrics.

Those interested in participating in the Challenge who are located in the greater Boston metropolitan area are invited to attend this in-person Challenge kickoff event where Challenge co-hosts and partners will provide brief overviews of their focus areas.
Registration is requested by Friday, September 15 at https://goo.gl/forms/YWKfL2ODIEENH8LW2
