The 2017 call for regular vouchers is open for all themes, but the PIHC fund is also specifically looking for a few projects in the field of oncology or big data. More details will be provided during this Matchmaking Event.

To enhance your chances for successful matchmaking we encourage all participant to give a short pitch in this meeting. We will therefore ask the audience to introduce themselves in about 20-30 seconds during the ‘pitches’; mention your name, where you work, what you do, and what you are looking for during the matchmaking. This could be a clinical problem for which you hope to find a technical solution, or a promising innovative technology that might be of value for the clinic.
