Call for Interest for EIT Health Summit 2019 exhibition

EIT Health invites Partners to exhibit their successes at the EIT Health Summit 2019 – Join our quest to find the most compelling examples of how EIT Health is living its mission of improving lives in Europe!

Innovation for innovation sake will no longer have a place in an ever changing and demanding healthcare landscape. Needs-based health innovation is fundamental to generate true transformation in the lives of patients and citizens. The shift towards supporting health innovations that meet truly meet healthcare’s biggest challenges must be reinforced – this is reflected not only within EIT Health but is also recognised in the new framework programme of Horizon Europe which is specifically focused with its missions approach.

Looking at the health innovation pathway end to end – from needs validation, ideation, co-creation, research and development, funding to regulation and reimbursement, we will explore the mechanisms by which innovators and entrepreneurs can strengthen their solutions – through the understanding of real unmet need and how to expedite its delivery to patients and citizens within an evolving political and policy landscape.

We will bring in experts from all stages of the innovation pathway, to offer valuable insight into how to build a clear societal needs and value proposition from the earliest timepoint, from idea to market entry and adoption and to increase understanding of the myriad factors to consider – from defining real value and impact for patients and citizens, understanding changing evidential needs and defining real needs.
