ARPA-H Launches the ARPA-H Dash Competition

The Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) recently announced ARPA-H Dash, an idea competition with a $15,000 grand prize for the winner. The competition is intended to generate revolutionary evidence-based ideas to transform health and advance breakthrough medical technologies.

The ARPA-H Dash will use a bracket format and online discussion, debate, and voting to narrow submissions to quarterfinalists, semifinalists, finalists and a champion idea. Sixty-four submissions will be grouped within one of ARPA-H’s four strategic focus areas (health sciences future, scalable solutions, proactive health and resilient systems).

Nominations for the ARPA-H Dash are being accepted through an online portal until April 7.

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Academic Radiology Committee continues to track and share new opportunities within ARPA-H.
