EIT Health

KTH is a core partner in EIT Health which seeks to address three key challenges:

  • To promote healthy living by increasing awareness of good habits and encouraging changes in our behaviour
  • To support active ageing by developing tools to help all of us work more flexibly and live longer in our own homes
  • To improve healthcare through innovations that empower patients

EIT Health programmes bring together the three sides of the knowledge triangle – education, research and innovative business creation. The business plan for 2020 is also the "calls" document (deadline 27 March):
