EIT Health Germany Headstart Awards 2019

Meet the best biotech, medtech and digital health start-ups in Germany for the Head Start award and the European Health Catapult.

The SHIP (Ship for Health Innovation Pitches) is an event for EIT Health Germany partners and friends to hear about the newest healthcare innovations developed by German, Swiss & Austrian start-ups.

In 2019’s SHIP event, 12 teams are competing for one of the few places for EIT Health Germany’s 2019 Head Start Funding, which support start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs in realising their next steps towards European markets and shorten the time-to-market for their innovative products and services. Six already pre-selected and pre-qualified Start-ups teams will showcase their product inventions and join the semifinals of the European Health Catapult, a collaboration between EIT Health and HealthAxis Europe.
