The MWCapital innovation area, The Collider, aims to transform scientific knowledge into market solutions that respond to the challenges of industry and society. Its training and business creation programs offer support to projects that have already passed the laboratory validation phase but are not yet mature enough to attract market interest, and encourage collaboration between corporations, scientists and entrepreneurs.
This collaboration will facilitate the process of clinical validation and acceleration of the projects incubated by The Collider, and their connection with the Barcelona Health Hub ecosystem. Likewise, the participation of the BHH team in the technology, industry and investment committees convened by the entity’s business creation program is expected.
The General Director of Barcelona Health Hub, Eva Rossell, has stated that “With the growth that is taking place in the digital health sector, the agreement we signed will contribute to further accelerating the innovation and design of new technological solutions and their transfer to daily clinical practice. In this way we will contribute to improving people’s lives and making our health system more sustainable”.
For his part, the director of the MWCapital program The Collider, Oscar Sala, highlighted that this agreement “will help health startups created at The Collider, improve your activity by being part of a unique health ecosystem that involves all the actors of the health model. It also reinforces the will of the Mobile World Capital Barcelona foundation to promote collaboration with the state ecosystem, fostering a greater number of research-business collaborations”.
