Award distributes €1 million for innovative health projects in Brazil
The objective is to achieve visibility, acknowledgement and offer incentive to physicians that develop innovative products and solutions to improve population's quality of life and well-being.
Unprecedented, the award will distribute a total amount of 1 million Euros (equivalent in reais, subject to income tax withholding)
As the prize official sponsor, Eurofarma engaged in the Project due to the strong social appeal, combined to its belief in the valorization of the Brazilian medical class. "We are very proud to make this prize feasible with solutions that will impact the population's quality of life", states Eurofarma Commercial director Roberta Junqueira.
Requirements – The physician interested in participate can register one or more initiatives that he/she accomplished alone or with a group of physicians (Medical Society or Hospital). After the period of registration, an independent medical council, appointed by different Brazilian medical and health institutions will select up to 100 projects.
To participate, physicians must have their registrations active at their respective regional councils and can't hold any direct association with Eurofarma.
After the selection by the Medical Council, the finalist initiatives will be available on the award website for voting by the entire medical community. Each physician can vote in up to 11 different initiatives, which will go to the final. These 11 winners will be back to a second voting by the physicians.
The great final event, which will be held in March 2020, will disclose the great winner. There will be 10 prizes of € 50,000 (fifty thousand Euros), in reais, and one single prize to the great winner corresponding in reais to € 500,000 (five hundred thousand Euros), amounting to € 1,000,000 (one million Euros), in reais. The prizes' values will be converted to reais and will be subjected to income tax withholding, according to legislation in force.
Registrations to Prêmio Euro Inovação na Saúde (Innovation in Health Euro Prize) can be made until the second half of October 2019 on www.premioeuro.com.br.
