EIT-Health is one of the largest healthcare initiatives worldwide. Its goal is to sustainably advance the fundamentals of healthcare and thus promote suitable future conditions for healthy living, active ageing and improved wellbeing of people across Europe. EIT-Health leverages the expertise of more than 135 member organizations from the pharma, diagnostics and med-tech fields, insurances, research institutions and top universities. LUMC is an associated member of EIT-Health.

EIT-Health promotes entrepreneurship and innovates in healthy living and active ageing, providing Europe with new opportunities and resources. It enables citizens to lead healthier and more productive lives by delivering products, services and concepts that improve quality of life and contribute to the sustainability of healthcare across Europe.

EIT-Health is built around the knowledge triangle with three pillars: Accelerator, Campus and Innovation. The Accelerator programme endeavors to transform the innovation process by offering support and services to access relevant markets and to increase the commercialization of European research outcomes. Knowledge transfer is ensured through the EIT-Health Campus, offering entrepreneurial, business- and application-oriented short and intensive courses as well as MSc and PhD programmes. The Innovation projects programme supports multidisciplinary initiatives that address Europe’s diverse healthcare challenges.
