Startups Meet Healthcare Providers 2021

Are you ready to engage with start-ups?

Healthcare providers across Europe are moving towards integrated healthcare solutions with enhanced value to patients while needing to adhere to financial sustainability. Innovation is increasingly a collaborative endeavour, with organizations looking outside of their workforce for inspiration. At EIT Health Germany, we want to facilitate this process.

Are you a European healthcare provider looking to deliver a consumer-centric healthcare experience? Do you aim to provide enhanced value to patients?

We are actively recruiting healthcare providers, public & private hospitals, municipal health authorities and health insurances to take part in the 2021 edition of our programme. Join us on this journey and make innovation happen.
