  • Harnessing the full potential of health data for innovation

The activities that are called for can be found in the summary table on the right.

Who is this Call for?

This call is open to anyone interested, including:

  • Our Partners
  • Start-ups
  • Healthcare providers
  • Research bodies
  • Payors
  • Regional/national/international policy bodies or institutions
  • Municipalities
  • Healthcare innovators

Applications are possible NOT ONLY for existing EIT Health Partners but you are required to submit a final proposal with existing core or associate Partners. You will also be asked to enter the partnership if you are selected for significant funding in the next years.

Supporting events

Regional webinars:

We will be hosting a webinar on 5 October at 9.30 am CET for our Partners to support any questions they might have in respect of the flagships call.

Networking and Matchmaking events

To further support this process there will also be a series of Networking and Matchmaking Events that we are planning over the course of the next few months

1. France, 21 September 2022: at the INNOVEIT Paris ‘Creating resilient innovation ecosystems for better health in Europe’ event

This will be an opportunity for Partners to understand how current health innovation challenges can be addressed together with Partners from the other KICs and EU instruments. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about the proposed flagship strategy and to identify some early collaborations for the flagships. However, this will not be focused on a specific flagship and will therefore be flagship agnostic.

2. Belgium-Netherlands, 25-26 October 2022: Matchmaking event coupled with The European Digital Medicine Conference “Facilitating the uptake of Digital Medical Devices in Europe”

This flagship aims to support the digital health transformation in Europe and will focus on the development of, and access to, digital health medical devices and diagnostics.

3. Scandinavia, 5-6 December

This event will focus on “New Models to Deliver Healthcare” and “Harnessing the Full Potential of Health Data for Innovation”.
