Catalyst Europe: Applications are open now

Catalyst Europe, a new programme open to postdocs, doctoral candidates (from any technological field related to health) and clinicians, funded by EIT Health, has now opened applications.

This 2020, the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen Nürnberg (FAU) is partnering with other European organizations to run the Catalyst Europe 2020, a fellowship program focused on creating impact from biomedical research. The programme supports talented doctoral candidates, postdocs and clinicians to identify and evaluate unmet medical needs, build multi-professional teams to design solutions and plan research projects that show strong potential for healthcare impact, in collaboration with industry and hospitals. Catalyst Europe belongs to the EIT Health Campus pillar, and is based on the MIT linQ Catalyst methodology.

Doctoral candidates, postdocs and clinicians from any European organization, in any technological and medical domain, can apply now to join the 2020 cohort. Applications are open until February 14th. Please find more details about the application process here and the application form here.

There will be an informative webinar on Jan 28th at 4pm CET to provide more details about the Catalyst Europe 2020 edition, the Catalyst methodology from MIT linQ, and the application process, aimed at potential candidates, their supervisors, or innovation managers at research centers, hospitals or universities, to solve doubts. Registrations here.
