Wild Card seeks to transform European healthcare delivery through attracting the best and the brightest minds to solve some of the biggest challenges. These are the problems that still are unsolved, inefficiently solved or delivered in a very expensive or inconvenient format. Through Wild Card, EIT Health will support high-risk innovative ideas with transformative potential on healthcare, targeted at solving key challenges as set out by EIT Health Partners.

The two challenge areas for 2018 are:

SMART HEALTH: How to transform medical diagnostics with artificial intelligence and big data?
