EIT Health InnoStars is one of the eight geographical areas of EIT Health. It covers half of Europe, including Hungary, Italy, Poland and Portugal, as well as additional regions included in the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme – Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Romania.

Headquartered in Budapest, EIT Health InnoStars brings together 44 Core, Associate and Network Partners. With them, we are focused on promoting entrepreneurship, innovation and education in the domain of healthcare, healthy living and active ageing. As well as concentrating on closing the gap between regions that are leaders in innovation and those regions which are still progressing.
