Patient Innovation Bootcamp Series

The Patient Innovation Bootcamp is an acceleration program supported by EIT Health aimed at supporting patients, informal caregivers, and collaborators so that they can implement and scale up their innovative solutions and help them cope with their health conditions. The ultimate goal of this bootcamp is to help the participating teams scale their ideas from solutions to prototypes, ultimately preparing them to be market launched. The program has a blended format, given that it combines in-person training with online.

The in-person training takes place for one week in Lisbon and is dedicated to validating and developing solutions.

The online part of the training is partly focused on designing business models offered by IESE Business School. The remaining in-person training takes place for a week in Copenhagen, where participants work on implementing and launching their projects.

Throughout the program, the participating teams benefit from personalized mentoring from patient innovation and entrepreneurship experts.

The Patient Innovation Bootcamp is supported by EIT Health, and it is a result of the partnership between Copenhagen Business School, Patient Innovation, IESE Business School, Nova School of Business & Economics, NOVA Medical School, Biocat, and Glintt. It also has the participation of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Imperial College Business School. Visit the following pages for more information:
