Dear EIT Health partners,
I am delighted to announce, that we have recently launched our new intranet: EIT Health Connections. This gives us a new platform for interaction and exchange. I would like to encourage you to use it to connect with other partners. Together, we have the chance to quickly fill EIT Health Connections with life.
My last weeks have been at the same time busy and productive. I had several strategically important meetings, such as a high level seminar on innovation, organised by the European Commission, a workshop with the EIP AHA regions in Groningen on a potential collaboration with EIT Health as well as the Friends of Europe’s third round table on “disruptive models of healthcare for Europe”. These meetings create great opportunities for us to position EIT Health and develop our brand with important EU stakeholders.
A short update on the submitted proposals, which are currently under review. After the Supervisory Board meeting on 28 July, we will inform all partners having submitted proposals about their outcome - latest at the beginning of August. Our EIT Health Partner Assembly will vote on the Business Plan 2017 on 19 September before we submit it for approval to the EIT.
In the meanwhile we are preparing our first EIT Health Innovation Summit in Barcelona on 23-24 November. This will be the next highlight to strengthen our community even further. You will find some first information about the event below.
