The EIT Health Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) was established in 2015 to provide equal opportunities for next-generation healthcare innovators. Introduced by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), it covers regions where the pace of innovation is moderate: from the Baltics, through Central Europe, to Greece, Italy and Portugal.

Today we work with 14 EIT Health Hubs in 13 countries. Hubs act as change agencies that support fast-tracking healthcare entrepreneurs with the skills, network, and resources needed to take their ideas from vision to reality in their regions. EIT Health supports business development at each and every stage to shorten the time-to-market for the most promising projects.
