What is Grants4Apps® Singapore?
Bayer is launching Grants4Apps Singapore, an open innovation program to foster and support innovative digital health technology in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region.
In the inaugural round, Bayer is partnering the National University of Singapore (NUS) to launch an open innovation challenge in Singapore and across Asia Pacific. We are looking for innovative solutions to improve medication adherence in elderly people with chronic medical conditions.

Roadshow [December 1st 2016 - January 31st, 2017]
We will be organizing events at selected Institutions of Higher Learning, hospitals and startup communities.
The goal is to bring together design, healthcare, business and technical professionals to learn about medication adherence via problem pitches that outline the pain points.
Participants can then interact and compare interests, maybe even pitch solutions to one another and then form teams (if they are not yet in teams) to submit a proposal.
