EIT Health announces €4 million in funding for ideas to transform European healthcare

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.
