Launching Gogoa Prize: Medtech Design Challenge for Engineering and Technology Students

Gogoa Prize Desafío Diseño Medtech

We are pleased to announce the official launch of the first edition of the Gogoa Prize – The Medtech Design Challenge. As experts in biomedical engineering, we have decided to take student creativity and ingenuity to new heights, challenging future engineers to design a revolutionary exoskeleton in this 2024 edition. The focus: enhancing the motor capabilities of the elderly.

Contest Objective: Connect, Support, and Inspire

The Gogoa Prize has a clear mission: to connect students with contemporary challenges in the development of biomedical products, specifically focusing on improving the quality of life. This initiative goes beyond being a mere competition; it is an opportunity to support young engineers, providing them with a platform to showcase and disseminate their innovative projects in the biomedical field.

Mission and Inspiration: Contributing to Progress in the Biomedical Industry

We believe in the power of students to create an impact, and we want to be catalysts for positive change in the biomedical industry. The inspiration we seek is not limited to the design of the exoskeleton but extends to practical solutions addressing real needs and contributing to progress in this fascinating field.

Looking Ahead: Establishing a Tradition of Innovation

If the first edition proves as fruitful as we hope, the Gogoa Prize will become an annual event. We aim to establish a tradition that fosters innovation, collaboration, and excellence in biomedical design, providing young minds with the opportunity to lead the way into the future of engineering.
