Innovation projects


OncoWatch provides improved prostate cancer diagnostics and new analytical tools for precision medicine, leading to improved care, reduced time to treatment, cost savings and accelerated drug implementation.

New SkyCare

New SkyCare aims to establish the first pan-European virtual hospital, providing patients safe, comfortable home-centered treatment through telemonitoring and remote medical assistance.


SeizeIT2 is a clinically accurate seizure detection system for people with epilepsy. This discrete wearable device monitors several biosignals to allow a more precise quantitative analysis of seizure activity, so that people with epilepsy can receive treatment optimised for their specific condition.


POSITIVE is a comprehensive system to bring care home by constantly monitoring a patient’s intrinsic capacity and sounding an alarm when a decline in that capacity may indicate the onset of a disease or disability. The system unites a person’s full community of carers, bringing together the patient, caregiver and primary and specialised care professionals.


The JPAST project tests and develops innovative new tools that permit earlier diagnosis of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) – with the ultimate goal of bringing those tools to market. Innovations introduced by the project include diagnostic and e-health tools and a new risk score: JPAST (Joint Pain Assessment Scoring Tool).


Campus projects


EIT Health Campus started CARE to develop standardised, professional training for elder carers. CARE 2.0 transitions this effort from an educational partnership to one of the largest training and advocacy networks for caregiving in Europe. CARE partners have developed a unique comprehensive training programme for caregiving.

EIT Health Fellowships Network

The EIT Health Fellowships Network is a comprehensive health innovation activity that presents a unique learning experience for participants through three different programmes. Each programme results in teams identifying a need, proposing a solution and presenting a validated business case for that solution. 


Innovation Days promote health innovation among university students through one-to-two-day programmes held at academic institutions around Europe. Students receive an introduction to practical health innovation tools and work in multidisciplinary teams to tackle real life health challenges posed by EIT Health projects, local organisations and private corporations. 

WE Health

Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in Health Innovation. WE Health aims at enhancing the participation of women in health innovation and entrepreneurship, by providing capacity building specifically tailored to women’s needs and by supporting their professional advancement. 


This course trains professionals to mine data about clinical processes in order to address the cardiovascular events and metabolic complications that take 18 million lives every year. PATHWAYS breaks the traditional isolation of medical, managerial and engineering disciplines to train a new generation of hospital managers and directors in using process mining to draw the highest value from Big Data.


Co-creative pop-up Laboratory

The Co-up Lab is a unique educational programme designed as a semester-long incubation process, where students develop their own ideas in co-creation with stakeholders, users, experts and other students. As part of their training, teams will hold “pop-up” events in mobile creative spaces, like the entrance of a hospital, so they can meet and co-create with various stakeholders.

Real World Evidence

This course will introduce participants to the potential of real-world evidence (RWE) – existing medical data collected from a variety of sources – so they can understand and develop new methods for data analysis.


MOOC design for healthcare: using patient journey mapping

The patient journey explores the interaction between the patient and the healthcare providers in all stages of their disease – from diagnosis to coping with treatment options and dealing with expectations The course addresses interaction with and between different stakeholders. The course will give designers and professionals in healthcare the knowledge, insights and tools to be able to analyse and improve patient experience.
