Also accepting White Papers is the PPDC Early Stage Device Support Program, a program to provide professional support to guide product development planning and other activities for early stage projects.  Archimedic is the PPDC's product development partner in collaborating with its innovators to provide support such as concept visualizations and strategic planning. The support is valued at $10,000 and only concept and early prototype stage projects will be considered.

Eligible technologies must be FDA-regulated medical devices with a pediatric indication (0-21 years of age). Applicants will be required to submit a brief White Paper Application including non-confidential information such as a device summary and visuals, explanation of the unmet clinical need, and completed/future development work including business and regulatory planning.
