News - 20 December 2018 - Communication
EIT Health is a network of best-in-class health innovators, including TU Delft and Erasmus MC Rotterdam, backed by the European Union. EIT Health collaborates across borders to deliver new solutions that enable European citizens to live longer, healthier lives. There is now a call open for proposals for activities that will improve the health of European citizens through innovative products and services, education activities, and entrepreneurship. Deadline mandatory pre-proposal is 15 February.


EIT Health is a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) established by the European Institute for Innovation & Technology (EIT), an independent EU body set up to promote innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe.

Only partners of the EIT Health network can propose for projects funded by EIT Health. TU Delft is core partner of this network and pays an annual fee which gives us access to the opportunities and network enabled by EIT Health. Proposals for funding from EIT Health require a strong collaboration with partners in other countries, other industries and other disciplines.
