European project eHealth Hub
A European hub to support SMEs within the eHealth sector
eHealth solutions allow patients to actively participate in the decision-making process already while undertaking medical preventive measures. Patients and healthcare providers receive information about expected outcomes and possible side effects in real time during diagnosis and therapy. Such services can also provide useful tools to clinics and hospitals by facilitating an efficient and error-free data management.
Although the number of events in the eHealth sector has increased over the past years, they have not provided sufficient possibilities for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Business incubators and accelerators are developing rapidly all over Europe; but there is still an urgent need for comprehensive support and wider coverage, especially in less advantaged regions.
Companies active in the eHealth sector can receive support from the EU through the eHealth Hub, not only to strengthen their market position but also to raise their visibility. Moreover, they can benefit from legal and regulatory advice and participate in training sessions on business modeling and raising funds.
Steinbeis 2i GmbH will support companies within the scope of the eHealth Hub project. For this purpose nine eHealth Roadshows throughout Europe will be organised until September 2019.
In each eHealth Roadshow a maximum of twelve innovative companies present their digital health solutions in five-minute pitches. The first three roadshows took place in Barcelona, Paris and Stuttgart, respectively.
Upcoming events and roadshows will be announced via the project website, newsletter and social media.
Project duration: 10/2016 – 09/2019
Countries involved: Germany, France, Great Britain, Netherlands, Italy and Spain
