EIT Health is a consortium of more than 50 core partners and 90 associate partners from leading businesses, research centres and universities from across 14 EU countries. EIT Health was designated as an EIT Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) by the EIT Governing Board on 09 December 2014.
The goal of EIT Health is to contribute to increasing the competitiveness of European industry, improve the quality of life of Europe’s citizens and the sustainability of healthcare system. The partnership will promote entrepreneurship and develop innovations in healthy living and active ageing, providing Europe with new opportunities and resources.
This will be achieved through delivering products, concepts and services, including educational programmes that will nurture talents and train the workforce of tomorrow. EIT Health will overcome the fragmentation of different healthcare systems in Europe and give companies easier access to markets across the EU.
The critical mass of partners from business and industry, education, research, healthcare providers and insurance companies within EIT Health, opens the path to reduced time-to-market for added-value products and services. EIT Health outreach activities are expected to spread all over Europe – establishing new ties to expand innovation and growth. and the URL is eithealth.eu
