EDUCATION – The educational programmes of EIT Health

EIT Health educational trainings and programmes are targeted at students, professionals & decision makers, and innovators & entrepreneurs active in Europe’s health. Patients and the individual citizen are also the focus of these activities.


Strategic initiatives

Educational strategic initiatives aim to strengthen the ecosystem of knowledge and innovative thinking. The strategic initiatives should have a positive impact on all other programs and activities within Education and the rest of EIT Health.

Student educational programmes

These educational programmes focus on encouraging students to enhance their interdisciplinary knowledge, skills and abilities so they can develop health-related innovations and entrepreneurial skills.

Educational programmes for innovators & entrepreneurs

In its Innovators & Entrepreneurs trainings, Education focuses on listening to the well trained healthcare professionals and decision makers. It offers training opportunities with a changed mindset and basic skills that can help to build successful businesses and improve health care in the region and across Europe.

Educational programmes for citizens

Educational programmes also appeal to all citizens – including patients and their relatives, as well as people with specific health risks. It is about enabling these target groups to participate in the overall social development of healthy life awareness and active aging.
