The jury of the contest included leading Russian healthcare specialists, experts from the Skolkovo Foundation and AstraZeneca, and independent business experts (Shvabe, FRII, and Primer Capital Venture Fund). 

The selection of projects was carried out in two tracks: scientific (treatment and diagnostics in the field of oncology, cardiovascular diseases, metabolism, respiratory diseases as well as medical digital solutions) and commercial (projects aimed at solving specific business problems in the areas of biopharma, oncology and improving business efficiency).

Three winners were selected for each track.
