EIT Health

The University collaborates with EIT Health as an External Project Partner (EPP) since 2019 for its excellence in the field of science and technology and for its capacity for formative collaboration. Together, they promote entrepreneurship and innovation in healthy living, active ageing and improved health care.


EIT Health is a consortium of more than 50 partners from leading companies, research centres or universities in 14 countries of the European Union.
The objective of the consortium is divided into three main branches:

  • Strengthening healthcare systems in Europe.
  • Promoting better health of European citizens.
  • Contributing to a sustainable health economy in Europe.


The advantages enjoyed by the UPC as an EPP are its label as a KIC Partner and the category of Beneficiary, with a financing capacity of up to 50,000 €. Their task in projects is to provide specific added value and the know-how necessary for the implementation of the activity.
