Patient Innovation Bootcamp
The Patient Innovation (PI) Bootcamp is an acceleration program aimed at supporting patients, informal caregivers and collaborators to implement and scale up the innovative solutions they developed to help them cope with a need imposed by their health condition.
The PI Bootcamp will be delivered in a blended way, with 3 weeks on-site (in Lisbon, Barcelona and Copenhagen) over an 7 months period, and supported by e-leaning materials designed to help teams of patients and informal caregivers to further develop and launch their device, diagnostic and digital health innovations.
We will select 10 teams and european citiziens will be sponsored by EIT Health for travel and accommodation (up to 10.000€ per team). There is not registration fee.
In light of the current events we have decided to postpone the deadline for submission of applications. The new deadline was April 30.
What does it consist of?
3 weeks on site will help to learn about and develop:

Also, all teams will participate in the EIT Health Bootcamp Tour in November 2020, which consists in two events where all EIT Health sponsored bootcamp participants will meet and participate in different workshops and network moments. In the end, the teams will be able to validate their clinical, technological and business concept. The teams will benefit from specialized mentoring.
How are the teams constituted?
The PI Bootcamp accepts teams constituted by at least one patient or one informal caregiver, who have developed an innovative solution to deal with a personal health condition (including diagnostics, wearable devices, telehealth, telemedicine, big data, apps, electronic health records, health information technology, personalised medicine, etc).
The teams must consist of three members with different roles, focusing on:
Overall business objectives and responsible for coordinating the team’s work
