InnoStars using midstream modulation method

Healthcare start-ups need entrepreneurial knowledge and other skills to succeed. SLIM gives focussed training for start-ups in the InnoStars regions.


SLIM provides tailored face-to-face and online training for start-ups from the EIT Health InnoStars regions. InnoStars regions are the more progressive regions within European countries where the overall pace of innovation is still moderate. Start-ups in these areas can benefit from education in professional development related to professional collaboration and strategic business communication. The programme’s unique approach makes use of the Midstream Modulation training method, which helps teams of scientists, engineers and designers transcend a simple technology perspective to adapt a mindset that is more open and entrepreneurial, emphasising collaborative engineering and product development.

Along with remote training, participants receive coaching at three InnoStars Bootcamp locations. This programme is intended to fill a gap between Accelerator Bootcamps and real corporate practice, and start-ups are linked to relevant living labs. The progress made by start-ups in this programme will be tracked with a special monitoring tool.
