Transition Fellowships deadline extended to June 23

9th July 2019

Campus programme targets PhD students

The application deadline has been extended until 23 June for EIT Health Campus Transition Fellowships, which are designed to help PhD students turn their ideas into enterprises.

DPhil/PhD students enrolled at Oxford University, Imperial College, University of Coimbra or University of Lisbon are welcome to the Transition Fellowship, an exciting EIT Health Campus funding scheme focused on closing the gap between completion of the doctoral thesis and obtaining seed funding for innovative ideas, products and services based on the research.

Successful applicants will receive €10,000-€25,000 towards the cost of accelerated development of their idea in their first post-doctoral year, to be used before the end of 2017. For example, funding can be used to further evaluate or translate research ideas, part-fund a salary or prepare a case for seed funding.

Who can Apply

Eligible applicants must be DPhil/PhD students enrolled at Oxford University, Imperial College, University of Coimbra or University of Lisbon who are in their 3rd or 4th year of doctoral training in a field relevant to EIT Health (see www.eithealth.eu). This can include any medical, social, IT or technical research which is applicable to the objectives of EIT Health in promoting healthy living and active ageing.
