EIT Health France
EIT Health France is headquartered in Sorbonne Université's Campus in the city of Paris, a vibrant financial and economic center with a long record of innovation and business incubation and a highly developed and dynamic innovation ecosystem.
We also have a satellite office in Auvergne-Rhône- Alpes, which includes a strong community of existing clusters and incubators with innovative startups, SMEs and joint teams from major academic and industrial stakeholders.
EIT Health France gathers excellent partners from the health ecosystems, with industrial partners in big pharma, medtech, biotech, healthcare and big data companies, as well as academic partners like leading universities and research institutes.
The Wild Card programe, pioneered by EIT Health, is a great example to give an idea of our missions and activities. This programme is aiming to bring together the brightest minds in our health ecosystem to work on two of Europe's most complex healthcare challenges. The 2018-2019 Wild Card challenges are focusing on both mental and brain health and the application of digital biomarkers to improve early diagnostics.
