iNovators Den

Applications for the iNovators Den 2024 session will open here later in 2024.

ESCRS is excited for a very special session in the ESCRS iNovation® Day 2024 Programme: iNovators Den.

Do you have an idea that you feel will improve the future of ophthalmology, but you are not sure of what to do next? Are you still considering how to get your great idea to fruition? This session is for you! This is your chance to submit your idea, get help and guidance from an experienced mentor and potentially earn a spot on stage at ESCRS iNovation® Day 2024.

We are looking for entrepreneurs who have personally developed unique ideas to address some of the biggest unmet needs of ESCRS delegates. Get ready to submit your idea soon!

The iNovators Den: EyeCare Pioneers session will feature winning presentations in three different categories:

  1. Sustainability: ideas to help conserve resources in surgery/clinic or to help decrease the environmental footprint.
  2. Devices/Techniques: surgical technique, new device, application, etc.
  3. Pharmaceutical/Therapeutic Solutions.

If accepted, you will be paired with a knowledgeable mentor who will help guide you through the process on how to create a compelling pitch that you will submit to the judges.

We have an esteemed panel of judges who will pick a winner from each category to present. Each of the three winners will present at ESCRS iNovation® Day 2024 to the attendees which includes ophthalmologists, industry leaders, venture capitalists and many others.

Submissions will be reviewed by the ESCRS iNovation® Day 2024 Programme Committee.

Application dates will be announced here later in 2024.
