This year's batch of DEXIC Accelerator was highly specific. Together with 4DigitalHealth programme, we have been focusing on the field of digital health. After 6 weeks of hard work of all startups, mentors and our team, we come to the grand finale - The #DemoDay!
EIT Health Innovation Day, organized virtually on 30.10., has challenged health, social, technology, business and marketing university students in 4 selected challenges related to digital health and telemedicine innovation needs in the Czech Republic.
The day included forming of multidisciplinary teams, selection of challenge to work on, design thinking theory and practices in 3 stages throughout the day, pitching skills workshop and final competition between all teams.
As part of the mapping of individual regions involved in the Live Circular Canvas project, we asked experts in the field of responsible and circular business about their views on the current situation in the Czech Republic. The questions were answered by Soňa Jonášová from Institut cirkulární ekonomiky (INCIEN), Dan Heuer from Fair Venture and Bára Kebová, Zachraň Jídlo z.s.
We invite all business, health/social care, marketing, technology and PhD. students as well as healthcare professionals, startups and innovators for the EIT Health Innovation Days (i-Day) in Prague on the 30.10. 2020!
In the HoCare 2.0 project, we get to its most interesting part. In an open call for small and medium-sized businesses, we have selected the two best ideas from companies Mediware and Oscar Senior to start the development of new products in collaboration with Czech Co-creation Lab and a group of seniors.
EIT InnoEnergy’s TBB.Connect! from 4-5 November will bring together innovators and industry from all corners of the world – giving attendees the chance to create and trigger new sustainable business opportunities.
Morning Health Talk on Future of digital health and telemedicine, organized on 25.9. as a hybrid event, connected more than 20 Czech stakeholders with 2 fantastic guest speakers from Estonia and Israel - countries that are scoring top positions in terms of their readiness and deployment of digital health and telemedicine solutions.
We are looking for startups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that will be involved in the creation of new products using the method of co-creation. During this process, companies will focus on developing digital innovations in home care. You can apply for the open call until 30 September 2020 and participation is completely free of charge!
DEXIC Accelerator is back together with the second programme called 4DigitalHealth. Both programmes open their applications on August 20th. Impactful digital startups can apply until October 5th, 23:59.
We have measured the readiness of companies for their digital transformation. Transnational Maturity Level is an index based on the mapping of companies from the Czech Republic, but also in other European regions,
The European population is ageing and pressure on carers is increasing. It brings the need to use innovative digital products widely used by seniors and carers. HoCare2.0 project offers SMEs to join pilot testing and get guidance in co-creation approach when developing their new products. Currently, there is an open call that SMEs can join for free.
The Danube Transnational Programme approved in a total of 35 new projects from the third call for proposals. About €60 million will be distributed from the ERDF, IPA and ENI funds. The main aim of the 3rd call is to foster transnational cooperation and support policy integration at the regional level. DEX Innovation Centre is the author of one approved project - eDigiStars.
After two successful batches, DEXIC Accelerator is coming back in 2020. The programme brings three major changes - the programme will run during November and the beginning of December, we are moving it to Prague, and Health startups will have specific curricula and programme called 4DigitalHealth.
Did you know that by 2060, every third European will be older than 65 years? It makes the “Silver Economy” one of the fastest-growing economic domains. Because many solutions for the elderly are digital-based and not well accepted, there is a growing need to involve them in the product design process. This will ensure that the product/service is designed for seniors’ needs and they will use it.
EIT Health and DEX Innovation Centre (EIT Health hub in the Czech Republic) would like to personally invite you to the EIT Health Morning Health Talk that we organize together on 25.9.2020 from 9:30 as a hybrid event both at Opero, Prague, and virtually.
The aim of EIT Health Morning Health Talk, in general, is to inspire through sharing valuable information about the tendencies of health innovations and strengthen communication, networking and activities of the local ecosystem stakeholders.
We will be very glad if you will join us together with other 20 Czech personally invited future thinking healthcare professionals - representatives of governmental organizations, healthcare providers, universities, science and research institutions, professional organizations, companies, startups and individuals.
