Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms or C-CAMP has signed a pact with the India Sweden Healthcare Innovation Centre (ISIC) to jointly identify and nurture frugal innovations and make quality healthcare affordable and accessible for all.
This crucial collaboration with the Swedish ecosystem is aimed at building a strong crop of world-class biopharmaceuticals, medtech, diagnostics, nutraceuticals and other healthcare interventions in India, for India, and beyond.
The partnership which extends to ISIC Innovation Challenge 2020, is looking to drive sweeping changes in healthcare delivery system in India by providing an innovation platform for ‘continuum of care’, encompassing diagnostics, palliative care and therapeutic interventions.
The Innovation Challenge 2020 will identify, mentor and provide incubation space cum networking opportunities to healthcare solutions that are inherently scalable and adaptable in India and other geographies.
“Healthcare is a universal issue not restricted by boundaries. C-CAMP is working towards solving pressing healthcare problems in close collaboration with global partners. This MoU with the India Sweden Healthcare Innovation Centre is a step in that direction. We look forward to engaging with the Centre to foster disruptive innovations together.” Dr Taslimarif Saiyed, C-CAMP CEO and Director said at the partnership announcement.
Anders Tofte, Trade Commissioner of Sweden welcomed the MoU and said “Innovation and collaborations need a forward-looking culture. Our vision for ISIC is reflected completely by C-CAMP. Delighted to be teaming up with C-CAMP to provide a nurturing environment to ideas and create strong impact together”.
The overall goal of the partnership is to create an open, holistic innovation system for scalable solutions including facilitation of clinical research, a key aspect of commercialization.
By the agreement, C-CAMP and Indian Sweden Healthcare Innovation centre will leverage each other’s ecosystems to promote high-impact startups from the healthcare arena. In particular, startups will now be able to access the AIIMS Jodhpur incubation facilities and AIIMS Jodhpur labs for carrying out clinical research on their products for a smoother regulatory pathway. ISIC will also provide networking opportunities for gaining international traction.
The pact was spurred by ISIC partner Atal Innovation Mission which also supports C-CAMP as an Established Incubation Centre since 2017.
