EIT Health


EIT Health was established in 2015, as a "knowledge and innovation community" (KIC) under the umbrella of the EU body European Institute for Innovation & Technology (EIT). Backed by the European Union, EIT Health is Europe’s largest organized network for collaboration within life science and health, and one of the largest life science initiatives world-wide.

The EIT Health community initiates calls, funds, and conducts a broad range of innovation and education activities. EIT Health network connects approximately 150 Partners within industry, healthcare, research institutions, universities, and public sector organizations. By connecting the right people and the right topics across European borders, innovation can happen at the intersection of research, education, and business – for the benefit of citizens.
