Are you delivering brilliant digital products and services?

Digital Maze Challenge
If so we want to let you know about the Digital Maze Challenge. A co-production between social innovation company So-Mo and LJMU Open Labs.

The purpose of the Digital Maze Challenge is simple; to harness innovation & creativity in order to improve health care and support people to live independent lives. 

In view of this we are offering two prizes of £10,000 each to companies who find innovative ways to improve the public’s ability to ‘self-care’ and maintain independence in older life. As well as the cash prize, winners will receive a package of on-going mentor support from leading health and social care organisations.

Join the Audience
If you’re interested in the Digital Maze Challenge Events but you don’t want to enter the competition, we would love for you to join us as a member of the audience, simply contact to book a place!

Challenge Information
As well as the companies we already know about we are really keen to see companies who have not previously worked in the field of e-health entering the challenge.

To give everyone a chance to really understand the challenges we will be providing an opportunity on the 17th of September 2014 for companies to meet with challenge holders. This session will see challenge holders take part in a Q&A after which companies will have the opportunity to book 1-2-1’s with challenge holders to test out their ideas & possible solutions.

In October entrants will have a chance to co-design potential solutions with clinicians, end users and commissioners.

The grand final will take place in November 2014.
