Programs and events to inspire innovation
IDEA2 Madrid, modeled on a program launched at Harvard and MIT, helps Madrid’s emerging biomedical innovators and entrepreneurs refine their project ideas and get the guidance and expertise to realize them. It is focused on developing innovative medical technologies and businesses that could solve important problems in healthcare.
“IDEA2 Madrid is a unique opportunity and a great initiative for turning ideas into real projects.”—IDEA2 Madrid Finalist
High-energy, fast-paced events that inspire young people to develop innovative solutions to solve unmet medical needs. Hackers form teams around new ideas, and collaborate to develop prototypes and demonstrations in just 18-24 hours. Teams compete for recognition as most innovative, most entrepreneurial, and most potential for healthcare impact.
“At first it was more an exercise in innovation since we came up with the idea the very morning the hackathon began. Now, however, we are very excited about taking the idea further with the help of the prize we have been awarded.”—Hacking Medicine participant
