European Institute of Innovation and Technology Health Community (EIT Health), a close partner of Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) is encouraging you to take part in a StarShip initiative. If you are passionate about innovative solutions, love working with a multicultural multidisciplinary team and would like to make a real impact on the society, join the StartShip today.
StarShip is an EIT Health educational initiative in collaboration with leading European academic and health industry partners.
Using a blend of different educational approaches – including elements from the Stanford Biodesign methodology – StarShip is a unique opportunity for participants to be involved in needs-driven life science innovation, working together with other innovators in highly skilled multidisciplinary teams, in close collaboration with Europe’s leading health care industry actors and EIT Health partners.
During the part-time, nine-month program, fellows learn to apply a proven and action-based approach to find solutions to challenges, verifying user requirements, and identifying unmet health care needs. In the multidisciplinary teams, fellows will develop responses to critical real-time problems, validate them in real health care settings, and produce a solution that will have an impact. Throughout the program, the teams are coached and mentored by the StarShip academic team and designated industry mentors.
StarShip’s outcome will be a crucial contribution to relevant market opportunities in collaboration with the industrial partners.
