The Patient Innovation (PI) Bootcamp is an acceleration program aimed at supporting patients, informal caregivers and collaborators to implement and scale up the innovative solutions they developed to help them cope with a need imposed by their health condition.
The PI Bootcamp is delivered in a blended way, with 2 weeks on-site (in Lisbon and Copenhagen) as well as online sessions. The entire process is supported by e-leaning materials designed to help teams of patients and informal caregivers to further develop and launch their device, diagnostic tools or digital health innovations.
What does it consist of?
The Patient Innovation Bootcamp will help teams learn about and develop:
Medical, regulatory and technological aspects
Lisbon, Portugal 🇵🇹
Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸
Pitches/transition to market

Also, all teams will participate in the EIT Health Bootcamp Tour, at the end of 2021, which consists of an event where all EIT Health sponsored bootcamp participants will meet and participate in different workshops and network moments. In the end, the teams will be able to validate their clinical, technological and business concept. The teams will benefit from specialized mentoring.
All selected teams will receive up to 5000€ as reimbursement for travel and accomodations expenses.
How are the teams constituted?
The PI Bootcamp accepts teams constituted by at least one patient or one informal caregiver, who have developed an innovative solution to deal with a personal health condition (including diagnostics, wearable devices, telehealth, telemedicine, big data, apps, electronic health records, health information technology, personalised medicine, etc).
