Tangible results for new business opportunities and growth
EIT Health is guided by the understanding that the societal challenges do not only present a risk but also provide a multitude of new opportunities if knowledge and networks are fully leveraged across all health-related sectors and new ideas are rapidly turned into solutions. Considering innovation as the basis for growth, competitiveness and social well-being, EIT Health aims to create around 340 new business ideas until 2018. These will not only generate new market opportunities for an average of 70 start-ups per year but also provide answers to central requirements of healthcare today and tomorrow.
Moreover – and as an important part of our sustainability efforts – EIT Health branded education programmes (EIT Health Campus) will offer a range of new and extended business and application-oriented courses that are expected to enrol almost 1 million students per year.
