Winner of: Health Innovation Challenge

In the constant search for solutions to the problems of society in which we live and always with a vision of sustainability, a group of researchers has developed a new project that focuses on health issues. No child likes unpleasant drugs, but children need and love treatment. The solution that the team arrived at points to the production of healthy gums, lollipops and chocolates – no sugar, no gluten, no lactose, no artificial colors and preservatives – and combine these with the active ingredient of the drugs in question, using them as excipients.

The idea combines business with pleasure by creating a drug production line in the form of “candies”. We have registered three national patents on this model as well as an international patent, which will allow their subsequent licensing in the pharmaceutical sector industries.
