Applications open April 1

We’re excited to reopen IDEA² for 2021! Though the program is still open to all biomedical technology projects with an eye toward commercialization, we are placing special emphasis on projects addressing women's health and health disparities in underserved communities.

IDEA² reopens for 2021 with a call for project descriptions on April 1. Applications will be due on May 14.

This year, the program will be entirely online, but our mission remains the same: To help teams with excellent biomedical technology ideas to sharpen their project plan and take steps to bring them to life.

IDEA² is ideal for project teams with strong idea to address an unmet medical need with new technology, especially those who are looking ahead to commercialization. While all projects in the biomedical technology space will be considered, projects focusing on women's health and healthcare disparity issues will be given preference.
