EIT Health DRIVE is a two-phase health innovation ecosystem-building programme consisting of a 3-month intensive training (2023) followed by the implementation of sustainable local healthcare-focussed start-up programmes (2024).
The EIT Health DRIVE training programme is based on a validated methodology developed by the Technical University of Delft and EIT Health InnoStars designed for start-up support organisations. It consists of practical on-site & online training sessions delivered by experts from leading innovation ecosystems.
The participating organisations will learn how they can:
- map their healthcare innovation ecosystems,
- engage the local stakeholders and leverage the regional connections,
- design and implement a sustainable support programme for healthcare and life science start-ups.
Following the success of the previous edition, this year, not six, but ten start-up support organisations will get selected for the programme from the InnoStars/RIS region.
