CTIP Announces 2024 Catalyzing Pediatric Innovation Annual Grant Competition

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - March 20, 2024 - The Consortium for Technology & Innovation in Pediatrics (CTIP) is announcing our 2024 Catalyzing Pediatric Innovation (CPI) Annual Grant Competition. Selected pediatric medical device innovators will be awarded up to $50,000 grants. Medical devices with adult indications that are expanding or wish to expand their clinical indication to pediatrics are welcome to apply.

Pediatric patients have long been an underserved population in the technology space with many having to deal with ill-fitted medical devices and a lack of access to effective diagnostic or therapeutic devices. CTIP aims to address these unmet needs.

Supported through a pediatric device consortia grant from the FDA, CTIP is pleased to provide grants to support the advancement of innovations in pediatric technology and devices. Funds will be granted to develop pediatric innovation from ideation through commercialization. Funds are available to support the achievement of milestones on the path to development of pediatric innovation in devices and technology.
