Upcoming CAMPUS Call for Summer Schools 2018

10th July 2019

Call opens during week of 16 October

 

EIT Health CAMPUS is happy to inform you that a Call for Proposals for Summer Schools 2018 will be published and available in the week of 16 October.

Through this call, EIT Health will seek partners from universities, research institutes, industry and the public sector to deliver Summer Schools in 2018.

In 2017, we successfully delivered five Summer Schools and we plan to continue to develop these as some of the most visible and high-value educational activities of EIT Health. These activities will showcase the broad expertise among our partners and attract the most talented students in Europe.

We have advanced the Call for Summer Schools in order for the proposal applications, evaluations and final selections to take place before the end of 2017. Summer Schools will then be able to start planning as early as January 2018.

About Campus Summer Schools

Summer Schools are two-to-three week programmes. Compared to E-Labs or other Campus activities, Summer Schools stand at the beginning of the health innovation pathway. Their main objective is to deliver the knowledge, skills and attitude that can prepare learners for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship in fields relevant to the three major challenges EIT Health seeks to address: promoting healthy living, supporting active ageing and improving healthcare. Each school/course should address one or more of these challenges, or a cross-cutting topic.

Summer Schools applicants will be encouraged to pilot/test new educational methods, tools and pedagogies to bring about innovation. They will also be encouraged to involve industry partners and other non-academic stakeholder as much as possible, as this is extremely beneficial for students’ exposure and advancement.

Stay tuned for the full Call document in mid-October!
