Inventors sought for healthcare competition

See a need for a new or improved device that could benefit healthcare? Bring your ideas to the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre) to win cash prizes.

The Print for Healthcare competition invites students and community members to design and 3D print devices, develop business plans, and pitch them to judges. The contest, offered in partnership with Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, will highlight 3D printing as a tool for quick and cost-effective prototyping and custom construction for creative technologies.

  • The University of Windsor Alumni Association is offering a $1,000 cash prize for the device most likely to be implemented into healthcare.
  • WEtech Alliance has sponsored an award of $500 for innovation.

No experience with 3D printing or healthcare is required. Applications are due by November 9. Find details on the Print for Healthcare website.
