Join the heartbeat of healthtech in Munich this June

22nd April 2024

On 5-6 June 2024, the third annual conference, powered by Bits & Pretzels, will take place at the International Congress Center Messe (ICM) in Munich. EIT Health and our Partner, Roche, are founding partners of this dynamic annual event which puts healthtech start-ups at its core.

The event unites Europe’s brightest minds in healthtech. Join us as we bring together over 3,500 healthtech start-up founders, investors, healthcare providers, and corporate executives to advance the healthcare ecosystem through new alliances, technology, and entrepreneurship.

This year’s conference will explore innovation and business for better healthcare around three main pillars:

  • Digital Infrastructure
  • Patient-Centric Care
  • Building resilient health systems

As Europe’s largest network of best-in-class health innovators, we are excited to bring key players from Europe’s healthcare ecosystem together and lead the discussion on how healthcare innovation can enable European citizens to live longer, healthier lives.

Exploring and advancing the transformative potential of healthcare innovators and entrepreneurs lies at the heart of EIT Health’s mission. We recognise the role of healthcare start-ups in shaping better patient care and more efficient and sustainable healthcare systems. This event puts healthcare start-ups front and centre, shaping new alliances, exchanging best practice, and forging new opportunities.

We represent an ever growing ecosystem of industry, investors, academia, research, policy makers, healthcare deliverers and more. Start-ups will benefit from exposure, discussion and interaction with an innovation community working together to bring healthcare products and services to market that could make a difference to the lives of billions.

EIT Health Stage

The EIT Health stage is the place to gain pan-European perspectives on ground-breaking projects and opportunities in the global healthtech ecosystem. We invite you to attend exciting panel discussions on future skills and skills gaps at start-ups and investment funds and how we can bridge that gap, how to implement the European Health Data Space at national and European level based on EIT Health’s latest Think Tank report, with real case examples, and a session on methodologies to evaluate medical digital devices in context of HTA regulation. There will also be deep dive sessions on what it takes to be an investor in the healthcare sector, and green transitions for the healthcare systems.

We will also be introducing you to EIT Health’s DIGInnovation Programme, part of EIT Health’s 2024 Flagship Call, which selects the top digital health micro and small enterprises and links them with international entities to create a consortium that will improve healthcare systems by accelerating the uptake of digital health apps by healthcare professionals and patients, and expediting market launch of the innovation while easing the reimbursement process. The DIGInnovation Programme opens for applications on 6 June 2024, and is a great opportunity for a start-up to get the funding.

Finally, no stage would be complete without a showcase of high-potential start-ups! So, join us to meet the rising stars from our EIT Health ecosystem.

EIT Health Catapult finals

Once again, the EIT Health Catapult finals will take place at

The Catapult programme boosts the development of European health start-ups by exposing them to leading experts and international investors. Winners often go on to achieve impressive growth. For example, deepeye, last year’s Digital Health winner, received a €2.5M investment in November, and Surge, one of last year’s Digital Health finalists, recently raised €7.5M following its second round of funding.

Join us on June 6 to see nine finalists from life sciences and healthtech compete on the main stage. The twenty semi-finalists are also invited to the final where they have the opportunity to pitch on a side stage and still have an opportunity of being awarded some of the Catapult Industry Partners’ prizes.

Meet our 9 EIT Health Catapult finalists from across Europe.
