Diabetes Prevention and Complications
What is it about?
Roche Diabetes Care has always been committed to supporting patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals, with concrete solutions which facilitate care paths, and which also guarantee and improve the sustainability for the National Health System. In line with Roche Diabetes Care’s commitment to operate as a “Healthcare Partner” of the Health System, Roche Diabetes Care is looking for innovative solutions for the therapeutic area of Diabetes Mellitus.
The global number of people with diabetes is expected to increase by more than 20% over the next 20 years: in Italy, the latest estimates show of an increase of 25%, higher than the European (22%) and global (24%) averages.
It is therefore imperative to intervene in two ways: on the one hand with prevention, and on the other one with the management and the evaluation of the serious complications that this pathology can bring.
Roche Diabetes Care is committed to this, and is looking for existing and innovative technological solutions and digital platforms (IoT, artificial intelligence, apps, etc.) for:
- the Prevention of any potential development of diabetes, in people not yet affected by this disease, through the evaluation of some indicators (e.g. diet, physical activity, habits, DNA screening/ predisposition to diabetes)
- the Support to people with diabetes in the self-assessment of complications (e.g. diabetic foot, retinopathy), in order to allow a more effective management by health professionals.
The Challenge is addressed to all the “Projects“, including, those managed by start-ups, which have already tested the value of their solution through a Proof of Concept (PoC) and do have proven results.
With this Challenge Roche Diabetes Care intends to recognize projects, presented by public or private organizations and individuals resident in Italy or within the European Union.
In the case of participation by public or private organizations, their application must be made by the legal representative of the organization or by another authorized person.
Entities and other legal entities that are employees of Roche Diabetes Care S.p.A. or other companies of the Roche group, their relatives, and relatives up to the second degree, are excluded.
Participation in this Challenge is free of charge.
