INNOVATE is the first of the two Open Calls planned in the HosmartAI project. In this first call for proposals, the project aims to enlarge a pool of health-interoperable technologies, by engaging innovative tech Startups/SMEs in the design, development and integration of their technological product/service into HosmartAI’s ecosystem.

HosmartAI will select the best four proposals and empower them to develop high value and impactful technology, employing the HosmartAI ecosystem and technologies. Through a 6-month programme, experts in diverse fields will provide selected Startups/SMEs technical support, access to HosmartAI architecture, up to €50k equity-free funding, visibility and the opportunity to work with innovative European healthcare stakeholders.
