About EIT Health
EIT Health is a network of best-in-class health innovators backed by the EU. We collaborate across borders to
deliver new solutions that can enable European citizens to live longer, healthier lives. As Europeans tackle the
challenge of increasing chronic diseases and multi-morbidity, and seek to realise the opportunities that
technology offers to move beyond conventional approaches to treatment, prevention and healthy lifestyles,
we need thought leaders, innovators and efficient ways to bring innovative healthcare solutions to market.
EIT Health addresses these needs. We connect all relevant healthcare players across European borders -
making sure to include all sides of the "knowledge triangle", so that innovation can happen at the
intersection of research, education and business for the benefit of citizens.
EIT Health maintains a regional structure that stretches across Europe, with six co-location centres (CLCs) in
cities that have high innovation ratings and feature clusters of innovative firms, universities and research
centres. With its headquarters in Munich, Germany, EIT Health has established CLCs in six regions,
UK/Ireland, Scandinavia, Spain, France, Germany/Switzerland, and Belgium/Netherlands. With the aim of
leveraging diversity and driving the potential of emerging innovation clusters, EIT Health has also added the
"EIT Health lnnoStars" in Hungary, Italy, Poland and Portugal.
EIT Health is a Knowledge and Innovation Community established by the European Institute of Innovation
and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.
