EIT Health is looking for partners in six European countries

The deadline is today.

EIT Health is seeking legal entities in Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Greece and the Czech Republic to support the implementation of the 2017 Regional Innovation Scheme programme.

The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) is a structured outreach programme of the EIT targeting countries and regions of Europe that do not benefit directly from the activities of the EIT.

  • Advertising EIT Health and its programs locally with special focus on start-up competitions.
  • Develop and disseminate success stories of local start-ups incubated in EIT Health programmes.
  • Mentoring local start-ups who apply and take part in EIT Health programs.
  • Organise local start-up trainings and awareness raising events.
  • Support EIT Health in promoting Knowledge Triangle Integration model and engaging key stakeholders and decision makers of the local innovation ecosystem.
