Kick-start programme

Join the innovation ecosystem

12 June

Final Bootcamp

In the final bootcamp of the ANGIE Kick-start Programme, all participants were able to present their idea for a new targeted drug delivery therapy to the other participants, the consortium partners and selected invitees. ANGIE kick-start teams received individual feedback and tailored advice to define the technical and clinical feasibility of their projects. MICROTAP & LRB bot projects will be invited to participate in the ANGIE Acceleration Programme that runs in 2023-2024 and will provide further support.

Create innovative targeted drug delivery therapies with our technology platform

Let's innovate together

The targeted drug delivery technique developed in the ANGIE project can dramatically improve the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and other medical conditions.

ANGIE invites researchers, clinicians, professionals, students and entrepreneurs with an interest in personalised and precision medicine to develop new therapies based on its technology platform.

Our kick-start programme helps you to understand the technology and shape an idea for a novel therapy for a medical condition of your choice. Through a series of workshops, dedicated mentoring, and access to leading experts, we will guide and support you to start a research project or a venture.

The ANGIE Kick-start Programme

From idea to business case,
to prototype

The ANGIE Kick-start Programme, an initiative from the ANGIE project, is open for students, researchers, and healthcare professionals with an interest for targeted drug delivery. It starts with an idea for a targeted drug delivery intervention for treatment of a certain health condition and finishes with a definition of the concept, a viable business case and a prototype development plan.

The programme provides participants with mentored experiences in healthcare innovation through a combination of workshop activities, focused project work, and other appropriate professional development and networking opportunities. The programme draws on the many facets of the activities established in the ANGIE project, as well as the network of our academia and industry partners and external stakeholders.

The programme and its various activities will run from October 2022 until May 2023. During this period, participants will work on their concepts under the supervision of their mentors. Expert-mentors from the participating organizations will meet with the teams to provide guidance and feedback once a month.
