Disruptive innovations often happen when different technology domains join forces. That is why flanders.healthTech together with VLAIO is opening a spearhead cluster call for subsidy proposals that enable the interaction between two or more technology domains. At least three technology domains qualify for this call: biotechnology (BioTech), medical technology (MedTech) and digital technology (DigiTech).

The resulting partnerships should be aimed at jointly developing disruptive solutions for a clearly defined unmet need in the field of healthcare. Alternatively, the consortia can pool their research strengths to gain knowledge that would clearly lead to such solutions. Valorisation of these solutions should lead to a quantifiable increase in investment and employment in Flanders. 

This year we are promoting a full bottom-up approach for project ideas. To get access to the €8M budget reserved for this call, the applicants have to check the admissibility of their project idea with a flanders.healthTech Prioritisation Panel by means of a project pitch. 

We open four different VLAIO grant schemes for this call. flanders.healthTech will assist potential participants to the best of its ability in the preparation of their proposal. However, participants bear full responsibility for writing and preparing a proposal that meets the eligibility and evaluation criteria set by VLAIO for the respective grant schemes.
