September 24, 2019 – Inreda Diabetic received national award with artificial pancreas. Inreda Diabetic has been appointed as a National Icon for the development of an artificial pancreas for people with diabetes. On 23 September last, Secretary of State of Economic Affairs and Climat has announced the three winners.
“We were already very pleased with our nomination as one of the ten finalists, but now we are also very proud that our artificial pancreas (the Inreda AP) is recognized as one of the best innovative ideas in the Netherlands. Of course, this award is a great reward for our efforts so far. Moreover, it could activate further developments, especially those regarding a possible reimbursement by the insurances.”
The winners of this award are supported by the Dutch cabinet. It gives them an international platform and helps them to realise their ambitions. Also, a minister or secretary will be appointed as an ambassador who, for example, will give access to a large (international) network and set up an individual support program.
