Digital Garden is the dermatology digital health accelerator powered by Almirall.

Digital Garden is the dermatology digital health accelerator powered by Almirall. Our aim is to help grow start-ups focused on developing innovative technology-based services and solutions across the patient journey in dermatology. We are also looking for meaningful collaborations with outstanding minds outside Almirall to find solutions to tackle some of the dermatology challenges patients face today.

At Almirall, we work hard every day for a healthier future, sharing innovation with our partners. We want to learn from them, share knowledge and empower them to play a relevant role in tackling some of the current and future challenges in the field of dermatology.

The Digital Garden is hosted at the Barcelona Health Hub, at the Sant Pau hospital in the heart of Barcelona.
