EIT Health was established in 2015, as a ‘Knowledge and Innovation Community’ (KIC) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The EIT is made up of various KICs who each focus on a different sector, or area, of innovation – in our case, that is health and aging.
The University of Copenhagen (UCPH) has committed to the EIT Health consortium by establishing a supporting project office. The EIT Health project office is located at The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, in the department of Research & Innovation. The unit assists researchers, teachers, and staff in general at all UCPH Faculties, in taking home funding and administrating the funds. UCPH-based start-ups are also welcome to contact the unit for support.
