Overcoming fragmentation

EIT Health will overcome the fragmentation of different healthcare systems in Europe and give companies easier access to markets across the EU. The critical mass of partners from business and industry, education, research, healthcare providers and insurance companies within EIT Health, opens the path to reduced time-to-market for added-value products and services.

EIT Health outreach activities are expected to spread all over Europe – establishing new ties to expand innovation and growth.

  • support and grow this figure to 90 new products/services annually by 2018
  • by 2018 create 70 start-ups per year
  • have 1 000 000 students taking part in its educational online programmes per year by 2018
