Challenge

The EIT Health Fellowships network is a comprehensive health innovation activity that presents a unique learning experience for participants. The network bridges gaps between industry, academia, and the public sector through the close integration of the programs about the need-led innovation. In doing so, the network provides a platform with unrivalled impact and reach for the learners, granting them access to leading institutions and a diverse group of peers to create products and services that impact patients’ lives.

Solution

The EIT Health Fellowship Network consists of three programs - Innovation Fellowships, Starship, and PhD Transition Fellowships.
The goals are to:
1. Educate cross-industry learners in needs-driven innovation in healthcare through an intensive 8-10 month education in multidisciplinary teams in tight interaction with real healthcare settings (Innovation Fellowships);
2. Train a pan-European set of learners in needs-driven innovation in healthcare in four academic one-week workshops and company visits, tackling concrete innovation challenges proposed by industry partners (Starship);
3. Address the funding gap between completion of the doctoral thesis and obtaining further seed funding in addition to providing entrepreneurship and need-driven innovation skills training to learners in two one-week workshops (PhD Transition Fellowships).
