Call for activities related to the flagships

EIT Health has launched its first flagships call. This is an open call for cross-pillar activities for three of our four flagships:

  • New models to deliver healthcare
  • Facilitating the uptake of digital medical devices in Europe
  • Harnessing the full potential of health data for innovation

Note that this does not include “Supporting the deployment of Important Project of Common European Interest in Health (IPCEI) to address market failures”, which will have its own specific call and timeline.

Who is this call for?

This call is open to anyone with an interest in healthcare innovation:

  • Our Partners
  • Start-ups
  • Healthcare providers
  • Research bodies
  • Payors
  • Regional/national/international policy bodies or institutions
  • Municipalities
  • Healthcare innovators

You do not need to be an existing EIT Health Partner to apply, but you must submit a final proposal with existing core or associate Partners and you will be requested to enter the partnership if you are selected for significant funding in the next years.

View our list of Partners.

Supporting documents

To support the opening of this call we have the following assets to assist you:

  • Description of the four flagship programmes
  • The call document which details the application process, as well as the activities we are calling for
  • Communications pack where you will find FAQs, a “what’s different” section and a checklist of what makes a good project
  • As of Maz 3rd, a change log document has been created to track any changes made to the flagship call document by EIT Health. Please make sure to check the change log whenever you download or access the call document seen above
  • Flagship FAQs: we have developed a Flagship FAQ document to support this call. Questions from the Connections group and the regional webinars have been collated here. This will be an evolving document that we continue to update for the duration of the call
  • Addendums to the Communications pack: Based on the feedback and discussions from the regional hub webinars, we realised that there are some areas where we need to provide simpler, clearer definitions of our intentions. We have therefore added two addendums to the Communications Pack to provide this added detail:
    1. Backflow Model addendum to the Communications Pack
    2. 1/3 Principle addendum to the Communications

Call reopened for DiGinnovation

We are pleased to announce that the Call for Fast Track Start-up Driven Innovation projects (DiGinnovation) has been reopened. The Call for Fast Track Start-up Driven Innovation projects (DiGinnovation) is part of the Flagship Facilitating the Uptake of Digital Medical Devices & Diagnostics.

DiGinnovation selects top digital health start-ups/scale-ups 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 speeding up the launch of the innovation on the market, while easing the reimbursement process.

The selection process remains the same as for all cut-offs of the Flagship call and is outlined in the Addendum to the Flagship Call BP2023 Cut-off 4, which can be found here.

Find out more about the DiGinnovation programme here.
