Apply now for the EIT Health Start-Ups Meet Healthcare Providers – #BHHMembersInitiatives

The EIT Health Start-Ups Meet Healthcare Providers (SMHCP) is a challenge-based accelerator programme that connects promising start-ups to a variety of European healthcare providers, such as public/private hospitals, municipal health authorities, or health insurance companies. The aim of the programme is to ease market access for start-ups by connecting them to healthcare providers that pose specific challenges from within their local health system.

In 2021 they have partnered with Children’s University Hospital Latvia and Diakonie Baden-Württemberg and they now invite start-ups working on potential solutions for their challenges to apply for the programme. Please note that a third healthcare provider will be joining the programme in the upcoming weeks, so stay alert for a THIRD challenge.

Challenges for 2021:

  1. Online interaction space for communities of patients and their families as part of an online children’s health ecosystem.
  2. Integrating telematic infrastructures into standard of care

Full description of the challenges, as well as programme requirements, is available on the website.

The deadline for applications is 3 September 2021. They are also organizing two webinars aimed to provide a detailed overview of the programme, its timeline, and the application process on 14 July 2021 at 11am CET and 1 September 2021 at 11:00 PM CET.
