EIT Health

EIT Health Campus, the education programme of EIT Health, provides up-to-date knowledge, skills and attitudes to help turn the brightest learners into healthcare leaders and entrepreneurs, who will shape the future of Europe’s health. Campus educational offerings are intended to increase industry knowledge and deliver novel skills, as we seek to inject an entrepreneurial approach into European healthcare education.

We are building a unique European talent pool in healthcare by connecting our learners to the EIT Health network – one of the strongest healthcare communities worldwide, composed of research-intensive companies, elite universities and innovative health and care providers. Working together, the learners and our partners can pursue EIT Health’s mission of encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship to bring about healthcare improvement for the benefit of the European citizen.

EIT Health Campus uses a host of activities, divided into five different activity lines, to build a creative healthcare workforce that is conducive to innovation and entrepreneurship, and to improve healthcare knowledge. Read more about the Campus Activities below.
