World Diabetes Day: Discover 3 EIC-funded startups driving innovation to defeat Diabetes

The EIC created a new Story | 3 weeks ago

Every year, on 14th November, World Diabetes Day comprises several campaigns and activities to raise awareness on the impact of this disease while promoting its care and prevention. But this year’s celebration has a special meaning because it also marks the centenary of the discovery of insulin. 100 years after its discovery, millions of people with diabetes still can’t access the care they need, and the disease caused 4.2 million deaths just in 2019. This chronic disease is not yet curable, but innovators from all corners of the world are advancing in diabetes research and bringing cutting-edge technology that stands out in the market. In the light of this World Day, the European Innovation Council Community met with 3 EIC-funded startups working in the diabetes space with innovative solutions to change its care and treatment.
