Programs in Tokyo

Grants4Apps Tokyo was launched in 2016 as one of the new digital health initiatives from Bayer's G4A program established in Berlin in 2013. We run two types of programs: Grants and a data science competition.

Focus areas

  • Supporting patients along the patient journey (prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up),including medication adherence and monitoring

We make an open call for innovative digital technology solutions to various challenges related to life science. Applicants who pass the preliminary screening are invited to give a presentation on their solution at a final selection event, where the winners are awarded grants.
