A World Without Disease

Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen Research & Development are bringing together the consumer, medical device and pharmaceutical sectors to award a prize or a series of prizes to the person or team(s) who submits the best idea, technology, or solution that will address a critical health need for the world’s population.

  • Integrate a novel approach that combines pharmaceutical, devices and/or consumer health solutions;
  • Address part or all of the spectrum of prevention, interception and cure;
  • Outline how the award would help them reach a critical milestone within the timeframe of a single year and provide a full “time-to-market” plan for their solution.

Value of the Award
