Health Innovation Program

The “Health Innovation Program” focuses on innovations in the life science sector. We want to prepare students and young entrepreneurs for the challenges of the health market. We impart knowledge and excellent know-how from various areas of the health market. We advise students and young entrepreneurs on the topics of start-up, financing and market access in the health sector. The new and synergistic concept consists of different modules that complement and build on each other at different levels.


The pillars of the Health Innovation Programs

The PhD Transition Fellowship supports phd students who want to pursue an entrepreneurial career after the immediate completion of their scientific work.

The Go-To-Market Academy provides professional-level expertise on the development and market access of medical products. Workshops on relevant topics are offered in cooperation with established companies and service providers. Participation is free of charge and open to all.

Insuring Digital Health is a meeting platform for start-ups and health insurance companies to establish contacts and explore cooperation opportunities. The event with pitches and speed-dating sessions is the ideal setting to present new solutions and to get to know the needs of the providers in a practical way. The focus is on patient-oriented solutions for improved and individualised diagnosis, treatment and medication options. The aim is to integrate innovative solutions from start-ups in the field of digital health into the service portfolio of health insurance companies.

The organisers of this event are Innovation in Health and 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry & Health for a potent Digital Health network in the Rhine-Neckar region.

More information will follow soon.

The Innovation Summer School takes place in cooperation with hei_innovation, the transfer office of Heidelberg University. Here, students can experience and learn how to apply the innovation process to real problems in the clinic. With exciting workshops and keynotes, important foundations are laid for a potential entrepreneurial career.

The topics are: Design Thinking, Story Telling, Pitching, Networking, Business Creation and Prototyping.

The programs lays the foundations for the challenges of the health care market in Germany and Europe and creates a strong network with various actors.
