Dear EIT Health Scandinavia partners and friends,
With this second newsletter the Scandinavian CoLocation Center (CLC) of EWith this second newsletter the Scandinavian CoLocation Center (CLC) of EIT Health can report on a number of partner and CLC activities. We plan to distribute our newsletter in 2017 on a quarterly basis and we welcome contributions from our partners reporting on EIT Health related activities, meetings and events.
We have within EIT Health submitted our business plan for 2017 and are awaiting the final 2017 budget for our activities. In early October we held a bilateral matchmaking meeting with colleagues of the Spanish CLC in Barcelona and we are now looking forward to go back to Barcelona and join the EIT Health Summit 23-24 November. Representatives of our partners will meet a final time in 2016 in Vilnius, Estonia at 30 November.
Our big event in 2017 will be the matchmaking meeting 1-3 February in Uppsala. This will be the only matchmaking meeting of EIT Health and it is therefore very important that our partners join the meeting to explore the unique opportunity to establish collaborations as a basis for submission of applications to EIT Health – the next deadline is expected to be in April 2017.
Educational (Campus) activities are ongoing and our academic partners have organised summer schools and hosted an E-Lab event in Copenhagen. Next big activity will be the Innovation day in November organised by our university partners.
Within the Accelerator segment we have awarded Proof of Concept/Head Start support to small start up companies as well as providing support for Business plan Aggregator and Go Global activities.
We look forward to the upcoming events and to produce more activities in 2017 in support of innovation and healthy ageing!
