2nd Inova+Saúde Award extends enrollments until February 18th

The award proposes challenges that will contribute to improving the performance of healthcare units in Salvador.


Applications for the 2nd Inova+Saúde Award were extended until February 18th. Launched in November last year, the award aims to disseminate the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation in Bahia, stimulating the development of new talents with innovative potential in the health area. The result of the award will be announced at the 2nd National Meeting of Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Health – ENEIS, which will take place from March 19 to 21, at Campus Cabula da Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública.

Teams with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 members can participate in the award, including at least one student regularly enrolled in one of the undergraduate or graduate courses (stricto sensu) of the Bahiana and a faculty advisor also linked to one of the institution's undergraduate or graduate courses. All team members must be domiciled in the state of Bahia.

In this second edition, Inova+Saúde presents to the contestants for the award three challenges proposed by the units Hospital Cárdio Pulmonar, Pain Therapy Clinic and Hospital Português. The idea is that the scientific and academic community of Bahiana, in collaboration with other educational and research institutions (SENAI CIMATEC, UNEB and others), propose solutions, which will be evaluated and judged as to their innovative and differentiating potential in relation to what already exists in the market. For this, participants will be able to schedule technical visits to the three units, in order to better understand the reality of the challenge presented by each one. Information on scheduling, dates and full notice will be available at the electronic address:
