We are delighted to share that this week we were named as one of the winners of Karger Publisher’s Vesalius Innovation Award, as first runner up. This award celebrates innovation in publishing, with a focus on start-ups in the health science sector.

A massive congratulations to the overall winner Nested Knowledge who are doing fascinating work in the field of systematic reviews. Congratulations are also in order to the second runner up Pilloxa and other finalists Sorcero and Appsens ECG247 – the entire short-list was very impressive and it is a real honour to be recognised as a runner up against such tough competition.

CiteAb founder Dr. Andrew Chalmers said of our win:

“We are so delighted to be named as runner up in the Vesalius Innovation Award. It is testament to the hard work of the CiteAb team over the past year in driving our innovation. ” 

The awards journey began with an application form and initial pitch deck, following scrutiny we were then selected as one of five finalists to present a final pitch to an impressive 12-strong jury with specialisms ranging from scientific publishing, to research and business. The final pitch was both challenging and thought provoking, with follow up questions on scope and competition from the jury.   

This award affirms the CiteAb team’s hard work to innovate with our technology and business development, and our dedication to using data to accelerate science, helping researchers and their suppliers. Given our growing interest and exploration of partnerships with publishers, we were excited to receive recognition from an esteemed life science publishing house, and to pitch at the STM innovations seminar. 

We would like to express our thanks to the Karger Publishers team for putting on a great awards, and to the entire jury involved.

What a fantastic way to end the year!
