Transitioning from academic research to working in the pharma and medtech industries can be challenging. EIT Health’s SCI FI programme helps its participants to overcome that challenge with the guidance of academic and industry partners. Now the programme has received an exciting award in Brussels!
The Emerging Europe Awards are an annual celebration of Central & South East Europe’s achievements in sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship. Its “Future-proof Education Initiative of the Year” category rewards organisations operating in emerging Europe which have implemented successful projects and initiatives aimed at improving education and lifelong learning in the digital age.
The SCI FI programme was awarded the 2nd place in this category on the 8th of November in Brussels “for their dedication to supporting knowledge transfer from academia to business and empowering new entrepreneurs” (Emerging Europe website).
