The challenge of the ‘Birth Day Inducement Prize’ under Horizon 2020 is to identify and bring to market innovative solutions preventing death and complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
The Horizon Prize for the Birth Day will be awarded to a solution that best demonstrates a reduction in maternal and/or newborn morbidity and mortality and/or stillbirths during facility-based deliveries. This solution will need to be novel, safe and scalable. The webinar will be useful to understand the general functioning of Inducement Prizes and the specificities of Birth Day Prize (objective, expected results, eligibility, proposal preparation (evaluation criteria) budget, evaluation process, funding conditions and awarding).
The webinar will be organized by the Health NCP Network HNN2.0 , and it will be presented by Grégoire Thiriar, Project Officer from the European Commission.
