Jury Prize and People’s Choice Prize

The submitted projects were reviewed by a specialist jury made up of healthcare professionals and representatives of patient organisations and specialist media, chaired by Dr Bertrand Kiefer, Director of the "Planète Santé live" trade fair. This jury awards the Jury Prize and selects the finalists for the People’s Choice Prize. The People’s Choice Prize is voted for in a online poll held from the beginning of September.
