Ascensia is seeking submissions for innovative digital solutions that can help to improve the lives of people with type 2 diabetes. The Ascensia Diabetes Challenge is a global innovation competition designed to support companies who are developing the next big leap forward in diabetes self-management.

Ascensia has committed a total prize fund of 200,000 Euros. Up to six entrants who reach the finalist stage are guaranteed a cash prize of 10,000 Euros. Prizes for the runners-up and winner will be announced later and Ascensia is offering partnership opportunities for the winner. A judging panel of independent experts from diabetes and digital health, and members of the Ascensia Medical, R&D and Commercial teams will select the finalists, runners-up, and winner.

The competition is now open for entries from across the world and submissions will close at the end of January 2018. Entries can be submitted at ascensiadiabeteschallenge.com where further information about the challenge, judging criteria, judging panel, and key dates can be found.
