Open Innovation: Solving healthcare challenges


This tailored acceleration programme is geared towards ground-breaking technologies, spin-offs, start-ups, SME’s and consortia operating in the biotech, MedTech or digital health sectors. To empower them to present compelling solutions to tackle the challenges co-defined by EIT Health’s industry and hospital partners.

In our dynamic programme, we supercharge start-ups by refining their value propositions and business models, offering hands-on mentoring. Together, we elevate patient outcomes, and work towards new models to deliver healthcare based on value.
