Up for a challenge?
The Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE is a $2.25-million global competition to accelerate the availability of hardware sensors and software sensing technology that individuals use to access, understand, and improve their health and well-being, using mobile technologies.
The purpose is to spur on innovation in mobile health using sensors to further personalized medicine.
The reason that this is an important issue is that in many countries, traditional laboratory tests, hospital equipment, and access to a doctor is often in short supply. Even in developed countries, it is difficult to receive health care that is timely, convenient, cost-effective and reliable. So, the development of biosensors is seen as critical for improving appropriate and effective healthcare for all.
A prize purse of $1.125 million is available for each of the two Challenges, for a total of $2.25 million. Each competition offers up to six awards:
A $525,000 Grand Prize
Up to five Distinguished Awards of $120,000
