Karger Publishers Launches its Fourth Annual Vesalius Innovation Award to Advance the Future of Science

For the fourth consecutive year, Karger Publishers is seeking top-of-the-line applicants for its Vesalius Innovation Award. The award is aimed at early-stage startups in the Health Sciences and Publishing sectors that are developing innovative technological solutions with a significant impact in their respective fields.

This year marks the fourth year of the Vesalius Innovation Award, with a total of $25,000 in prizes to be granted to the top performers. The winner will receive $15,000, while the two runners-up will be awarded $5,000 each. 

The focus of this year’s competition is on knowledge communication, patient centricity, and artificial intelligence. Early-stage startups in the health sciences are encouraged to submit their award applications via the dedicated website, www.karger.com/via from May 15 to September 3. 

The judging panel is comprised of leading Health Sciences and publishing experts, who will evaluate the submissions and provide feedback to the participants. After the evaluation by the jury, the top five shortlisted startups will be invited to present their ideas at the STM Week in London in December. This is an excellent opportunity for the startups to showcase their innovations to a wider audience and gain valuable exposure. 

The Vesalius Innovation Award has been presented in collaboration with the STM Association since its inception, and the organisers are grateful for the continued support of Gold Sponsor Molecular Connections, new Silver Sponsor Park56, alongside the new partner Silverchair.
