We are happy to announce that University of Zagreb is a part of a network of best-in-class health innovators backed by the EU. The Supervisory Board of EIT Health InnoStars has approved the selection of the University of Zagreb as a new EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) hub, which will join the EIT Health network to work alongside the existing network of ten (now thirteen) regional hubs in implementing the EIT Health Regional Innovation Scheme .
The EIT Health Hub for Croatia will be asked to:
- take part in the implementation of the EIT RIS programmes in 2019;
- develop the local innovation ecosystem with the help of EIT Health;
- help EIT Health find the best talents, entrepreneurs and start-ups from their region/country.
EIT Health deliver solutions to enable European citizens to live longer, healthier lives by promoting innovation and connect the right people and the right topics across European borders, so that innovation can happen at the intersection of research, education and business – for the benefit of citizens.
EIT RIS is the EIT Community’s outreach scheme. The scheme enables the transfer of good practices and know-how from the EIT’s unique approach to boosting innovation. The EIT RIS was introduced in 2014 to share good practices and experience emerging from EIT Community activities and to widen participation in our activities across Europe.
