The main objective of the meeting is to build a rich and exciting portfolio of cross-CLC INNOVATION projects and ACCELERATOR/CAMPUS activities for the EIT Health BP2019 call and beyond.

The one-day format of the event is built around a series of succinct Round Table sessions (approximately 45min each). Leading a Round Table discussion enables industry, non-academic, and academic partners from both CLCs to explore interests from core and associate partners from both CLCs to collaborate and build specific proposals around their project idea or challenge; either for submission to future EIT Health calls or projects outside the EIT Health funding envelope (e.g. H2020, national grants). Staff will be on hand to capture proposals and – where applicable – support PLAZA entries for EIT Health BP2019 proposals on the day.

Event agenda:

11:00 – 11:15 Welcome (Uli Harnacke & Katharina Ladewig)
11:15 – 13:00 Industry-led Round Tables (2 rounds à 5 tables each)
13:00 – 13:30 Networking lunch
