Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health
Competition for USA, Canada, and International innovators to develop tamper-resistant medication packaging. The purpose of the competition is to encourage the development of creative, easy-to-use, child-resistant, single-dose packaging for both liquid and solid medications. In addition to grant funding, winning innovators will have access to the JLABS network and will receive mentorship.
To inspire innovators to bring potentially groundbreaking unit dose packaging options to the market – with a focus on child-resistant, user-friendly, non-reclosable designs - Johnson & Johnson Innovation together with the packaging innovation team within Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. is launching the Packaging Design QuickFire Challenge: Unit Dose Technologies. Potential innovations can include both solids (tablets, capsules, and powders) and liquids (solutions and suspensions) in unit-dose formats (e.g. blisters, sachets, and stick packs). Primary and secondary packaging or combination of the two are in scope of the challenge.
The innovator(s) with the best idea, potential technology, or potential solution will receive grant funding, access to the global Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS network, and mentorship from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.
Submissions are expected to focus on the “main criteria” shown below. The “criteria to also consider” will help you differentiate your submission from the rest and the applicant is expected to elaborate on how these criteria can be or not be addressed.
Criteria to also consider:
** Ideas are not expected to have a test certificate but should consider as a reference to the 16 CFR § 1700.20. In general, a child-resistant and user-friendly test consists of two parts. For the first part, a child must not access to “F” amount of unit doses in a period of 10 minutes. F1 means test failure when a child accesses to 1 unit dose. F9 means failure when a child accesses to 9 unit doses. The second part of the test is the user-friendly test. A user should be able to open the packaging in a period of 1 minute.
