Open call for funding to support projects focusing on integrating digital innovations and disruptive technologies across the Medical Diagnostics and related value chains.

An open call for funding was launched by DIGI-B-CUBE project, to support projects focusing on integrating digital innovations and disruptive technologies across the Medical Diagnostics and related value chains.

The DIGI-B-CUBE project is funded under the European Union´s Horizon 2020 Programme to support SMEs in the development and delivery of new market-sensitive disruptive technologies and key digital innovations to reconfigure patient-centred diagnostics towards a Health Economy 4.0.

The DIGI-B-CUBE project aims to unlock the cross-sectoral collaborative potential of SMEs by combining Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cognitive Computing Digital Technologies (CCDT) with the Bioimaging-Biosensing-Biobanking (B-CUBE).

What is B-CUBE?

  • Bioimaging, or biological imaging, refers to when creating images of the human body or parts of it to diagnose or examine disease.
  • Biosensing is the measurement of a chemical substance, for example, glucose monitoring in diabetes patients or other medical health-related targets.
  • Biobanking is the storing of human biological samples so that they can be used for medical research later.

Small and Medium Enterprises (including new start-ups) operating in the health, medicine, biotech, biopharma, IT or related sectors (robotics, automation, electronics, nanotech etc.) can apply for equity-free funding.

Application is open for:

  • Prototyping Voucher - up to €20,000 per SME / up to €60,000 per project
