Ceva Animal Health (Ceva) has launched its 2024 “Call for Projects” search to discover and support new, innovative solutions for the well-being and care of companion animals to enhance the human-animal bond.
Through the “Call for Projects” programme, the company seeks to harness the expertise and creativity of individuals, startups and organisations to address key issues in animal health and develop groundbreaking solutions that will benefit companion animals worldwide.
The worldwide initiative welcomes projects that span a wide range of areas with the objective of co-developing innovations to advance pet well-being and support the human-animal bond.
These include, but are not limited, to:
- Digital health solutions: leveraging technology and data to enhance the monitoring, diagnosis and treatment of companion animals
- Preventive care: novel approaches to preventive care, such as nutrition, vaccination and behaviour management
- Wellness and enrichment: innovative products or services that promote physical and mental well-being in companion animals
- Diagnostic tools: advanced diagnostic tools, including rapid and non-invasive methods for accurate diagnosis and monitoring of animal health
Participants are encouraged to submit their project proposal detailing their innovative solutions, target audience and potential impact on Agorize.
Projects must be submitted in one (or more) of the categories available on the platform: Devices, digital or technology.
A panel of judges, comprising leading experts from Ceva, will carefully evaluate the submissions based on criteria such as innovation, feasibility, scalability and potential for impact.
Selected projects will receive valuable support from Ceva, including mentorship, access to industry networks and resources to accelerate the development and commercialisation of their innovative solutions.
Additionally, the selected projects will gain recognition and visibility within the animal health community, paving the way for future collaborations and partnerships.
“We are excited to launch the 2024 ‘Call for Projects’,” says Marc Prikazsky, chairman and CEO at Ceva. “Companion animals play an essential role in our lives, and we are convinced that by fostering innovation we can improve their well-being and ensure they receive the care they deserve.
“With the increasing humanisation of pets, our furry companions have become members of the family. Pet parents are increasingly looking for new solutions to provide them with the best possible care.
“That’s why we encourage individuals and organisations from diverse backgrounds to participate and help us discover game-changing solutions for companion animal health.”
