EIT Health Spain has partners from five regions: Catalonia, Madrid, Valencia, Basque Country and Andalusia. Together they offer a vibrant innovation environment, with close ties between businesses, Universities, University hospitals and healthcare providers who act as strong agents in the three pillars of the innovation triangle: research, education and business creation.

Our vision is to be a reference alliance in health, enhancing the prevention and promotion of active ageing and improvement of the chronic patient. We work to ensure sustainability of the Spanish node and foster collaboration at both national and international levels.
