Interested candidates are invited to enter information about their previous work and submit an original project proposal addressing the topic of the call. After a first evaluation round, selected applicants are invited to a 5-day innovation boot camp. The invitation includes full coverage of travel expenses, accommodation, sightseeing, and food for the entire workshop.
During the innovation boot camp, all candidates work in interdisciplinary teams under the guidance of experienced mentors on their project proposals. On the final day, all ideas and results are presented in front of a distinguished jury including the senior management of the sponsoring pharma partner of BioMed X.
