Patient Innovation Bootcamp

Who better than patients and their caregivers to have crucial insight for product innovation?

Offering a unique combination of mentoring, and onsite and online training, this Bootcamp supports the development and launch of innovative solutions created by people directly affected by health conditions. The aim is to help them move their solutions from ideas to prototypes to market-ready innovations.

The Patient Innovation Bootcamp consists of mentoring and training in Lisbon, medical and technology validation in Barcelona, implementation and dissemination in Copenhagen, and online training regarding business model design in between. Travel and accommodation costs are supported by the programme for selected start-ups.
