Diabetes Center Berne Launches Its First Open Innovation Challenge and Supports the Most Promising Ideas Submitted With Coaching, Expertise and a Total of 200,000 USD in Funding

In the last few years, diabetes technology has made enormous progress in improving the lives of people living with diabetes. However, there is still a great unmet need for innovative technology solutions that help ease the burden of diabetes and improve the lives of people who have it. One of these unmet needs is better glucose measurement. People with diabetes are asking for methods of glucose measurement that are more convenient, less invasive and more affordable.
