Scoring Rubrics

Six evaluation criteria: clinical need, novelty, technical merit, demonstration of technical feasibility, clinical feasibility & translational readiness, and IP potential & business model will be used to rate and rank the submissions:

Clinical need

  • Has the project addressed how challenges from a clinical point of view be solved?


  • To what degree is the work a creative and original application or an advance over other work reported in the field, including the team’s earlier work?
  • Are appropriate references to others’ previous work included?

Technical Merit

  • How challenging the project is technically?
  • How appropriate is the project's use of technology or scientific innovation?

Demonstration of Technical Feasibility
(Prototype, Physical Model, or Computer Model)

  • Is there a proof of concept in the form of a video and hardware prototype?
  • Is the video compelling to the viewer and does it demonstrate the argued impact?
  • How effective is the concept being demonstrated?
