All the start-ups recruited by MUG to EIT Health Accelerator Programmes were invited to cooperate and share their experiences by making presentations of their adventure with healthcare topics.
Both scientists and start-ups received professional support from the Investment Funds representatives. All of the MUG recruited start-ups were also invited to take part in an interview as a great opportunity to promote their top stories and support their innovative ideas and projects within local ecosystem.
