Fourth Annual NCC-PDI Device Innovation Competition

Deadline to Submit:  September 5, 2016

The National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innnovation (NCC-PDI) is seeking proposals from inventors in medical institutions, private practices, the business community, and academic researchers who have medical device concepts or ideas for use with pediatric patients. Proposals should address a significant, yet unmet need within the pediatric population with a device idea that lends itself to commercialization.

The proposal should be directed towards development of a commercializable product, not research of a scientific concept. Issues such as prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, and regulatory clearance will be paramount and should be addressed explicitly.

Finalists will be invited to present their device at a live competition at the NCC-PDI's 4th Annual Symposium on Pediatric Surgical Innovation in Washington, DC, on October 8, 2016.
