A collaborative innovation program

In this program, you will team up with carefully selected top-class innovative companies, to access a network of 5,465 EIC-funded SMEs. These companies will be matched with your key health challenges followed by a final selection made by you.

You will have the opportunity to collaborate with peers from three or four (non-competitive) other corporates. The program involves scouting the best available innovations, and exchanging content and expertise insights with your peers.
