The University of Oxford is a core partner in the EU EIT Health programme (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) which is a consortium of businesses, research centres and academic institutions. EIT Health provides funding to consortia formed of partner organisations and EIT external collaborators that contribute to the competitiveness of European industry, improve the quality of life of Europe’s citizens and the sustainability of the healthcare system.
The programme consists of three funding pillars (Campus, Innovation Projects and Accelerator) aimed to promote healthy living, support active ageing and improve healthcare.
Calls for projects in 2018 will open on 19th December 2016 and remain open until 12th April 2017.
A special seminar from Katharina Ladewig, Director of EIT Health UK/Ireland, hosted by Professor Bass Hassan (Dunn School of Pathology) will be held on January 19th 2pm at the Richard Doll Building to discuss this new opportunity. The seminar will be followed by a Q&A session and a chance to hear from recipients of awards in 2016.
