The competition is to find the most innovative ideas in epilepsy and seizure treatment and care. Examples of novel ideas include a system to detect seizures with the capacity to provide early warning to the patient or family; a treatment that stops a seizure from progressing; a system that helps patients manage their daily treatment; a device that prevents physical injury that patients may experience when in seizure; or an entirely new product concept with the promise to dramatically improve the lives of people with epilepsy.

Selected finalists will receive international recognition and compete for grants totaling $200,000 to support the development and commercialization of their new product, technology, or therapeutic concept.
