Open innovation competition – funding awards for research proposals
Japanese pharmaceutical and health care specialists, Asahi Kasei recently launched an open innovation competition to identify new drugs and solutions that could help manage “locomotive syndrome“; the condition of reduced mobility due to degradation of the musculoskeletal system.
Japan has an ageing population, where currently 23% of the people are over 65 years old. This is expected to increase to 40% by 2055, which means there are considerable pressures on the country, particularly health services as more and more people are expected to be affected by chronic pain, metabolic bone diseases or rheumatoid arthritis.
The request for proposals document outlines a number of calls across the following research needs/topics:
- New drug development technologies for chronic pain, rheumatoid arthritis, bone/cartilage repair & regeneration
- New technologies to address drug discovery and development
Awards of up to US $50,000 are offered to support collaboration on projects typically no longer than one year.
