In the third year of the InnoStars Awards, the winners were chosen from 116 high-quality contestants based in the 13 RIS countries – which have more moderate levels of innovation than other European countries.
Selected by a panel of experts, the winning start-ups include five from Portugal, two from Poland, two from Hungary, two from Latvia, one from the Czech Republic, one from Lithuania, one from Italy and one from Romania.
They will receive EUR 25 000 of smart money, individual mentoring for four months, and the opportunity to participate in two bootcamps in Europe. EIT Health InnoStars will also organise three validation interviews with potential customers, investors and partners for the award winners. After the four-month programme, 10 finalists will be selected to participate in the InnoStars Awards final pitch in November, to compete for the three top prizes: an additional EUR 25 000, EUR 15 000, or EUR 10 000 in funding.
