The EIT Health Summer Schools support innovation by empowering the healthcare leaders and innovators of tomorrow. These programmes provide students with the necessary skills to identify needs related to healthcare and to transform innovative ideas into well-elaborated business cases that can attract investment.
Summer Schools are two-to-three week programmes. Compared to E-Labs or other Campus activities, Summer Schools stand at the beginning of the health innovation pathway. Their main objective is to deliver the knowledge, skills and attitude that can prepare learners for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship in fields relevant to the three major challenges EIT Health seeks to address: promoting healthy living, supporting active ageing and improving healthcare. Each school should address one or more of these challenges, or a cross-cutting topic.
