Dear EIT Health partners and friends,
The past weeks have been incredibly successful for us at the UK-Ireland CLC.
It was a pleasure to host the DPhil/PhD Transition Fellowship final
at the CLC London offices and I would like to congratulate the DPhil/PhD students from the University of Oxford and Imperial College London who were selected to receive Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. I was intrigued by your projects, all of which were very innovative and I wish you the best of luck for your development going forward.
This was also a busy month for our Accelerator activities, with the semi-finals of the EIT Health European Health Catapult
taking place across Europe. Four out of the five UK-Ireland participants progressed to the final stage of the programme and I could not be more pleased. I look forward to listening to their pitches at the EIT Health Summit on 4-5 December in London. Find out whom we will be cheering for at the Summit here.
Thank you to all partner representatives who joined us for the UK-Ireland Partner Meetings
on 21 September (Innovation focus) and on 11 October (PMO focus). The slides from the latter session will be circulated them with you via email. Please note the deadline for BP2017 amendments has now passed.
In the CLC office, we warmly welcomed Dr. Alexis Pacquit
to the EIT Health UK-Ireland team this week and I look forward to working with him in his new role as Innovation Manager UK-Ireland
. As we filled this post, I would like to draw your attention to a new vacancy
for an Education Programme Manager UK-Ireland
who will work closely with our Strategic Education Lead Graham Armitage on Campus projects and activities.
Finally, I strongly encourage all of our partners to submit their proposals to the 2018 EIT Health Summer Schools call
, which opened this week
.Submissions close on 27 November.
I wish you all a wonderful Autumn and hope to hear from you soon regarding your Campus submissions.
Managing Director, EIT Health UK-Ireland
