HealthLab Corporate Collaboration Program

Our corporate partners brought 2 challenges to be solved and the possibility of cooperation for the best and brightest. 

Living smarter with skin-related conditions

How might we empower patients with diagnosed skin conditions to live a better life?



Skin diseases are the fourth most common cause of all human disease, affecting almost one-third of the world’s population, yet their burden is often underestimated, despite their visibility. The aim of the challenge is to find patient-centric, B2B2C digital solutions that empower patients to cope better by tracking or treating their skin-related medical conditions. The solution is expected to provide a real added value for the patient and be complementary to medical therapy.


Skin tracking | Medication Extension | Digital Skin Care | Disease Self Management | Digital skin care | Cosmetology | Keratosis | Rosacea AREA THAT ARE EXPLICITLY

EXCLUDED: Solutions related to melanoma, psoriasis, eczema


The challenge partner is not ready to reveal herself just yet, but you can get to know them during the program. What they are ready to tell is that  they are a leading generic pharmaceutical company in Europe whose activities incorporate all areas of the pharmaceutical value chain. The challenge partner is a member of an international pharmaceutical company governed by a non-profit foundation with its headquarters in France. While focusing mainly on treating diseases of the cardiovascular and central nervous systems, the challenge partner also provides modern treatment solutions in the fields of oncology and women’s health.

Empowering home-based caregivers using digital solutions

How might we provide new digital solutions to empower on a day-to-day basis, caring relatives and non-professionals caregivers of elderly patients in a long-term homecare setting?



More than half of all dependents in Germany are cared for at home solely by caring relatives. Caring relatives are often overwhelmed by the great responsibility of coordinating, planning and adapting to these new and always changing circumstances and bear the significant emotional burden of caregivers often without professional training. The aim of this challenge is to empower caring relatives to be able to improve the quality of care at home, and provide them with a peace of mind knowing that their family member is being well cared for. To achieve this, we are searching for start-ups/partners that provide innovative digital solutions for people that care for elderly people at home.

For 200 years, HARTMANN has proudly channelled its clinical and medical expertise into smart solutions that are accessible to everyone.
