The search for big ideas has begun! Join the third annual Astellas Oncology C3 Prize (Changing Cancer Care) by Astellas Pharma Inc., a global challenge aimed at inspiring non-treatment ideas that may improve cancer care for patients and their loved ones. 
This year’s challenge will focus on solutions for cancer care in low- and middle-income countries, which bear a disproportionate burden of the global cancer epidemic within three categories: support tools, educational tools and technology. 

Three category winners will present their ideas to a live panel of judges at the 2018 World Cancer Congress on October 3, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, organized by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).

Three prizes totaling $100,000 USD (one $50,000 USD and two $25,000 USD grants) to be won. In addition to the prize money, winners will receive a one-year “nights and weekends” membership to MATTER, a Chicago-based healthcare innovation community, to help bring their ideas to life.

The Astellas Oncology C3 Prize is now open for submissions via Challenge ends 25th July 2015.
