The StarShip Fellowship Program is coming back for 2020 and the APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!

17.01.2020

StarShipis 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 Stanford Biodesign Concept, StarShip is a unique opportunity for participants to be involved in industry-driven life science innovation, working together with innovators in and outside the companies in highly skilled multidisciplinary teams.

Starship is for all interested in the health sector with a relevant background(s) in medicine, engineering (mechanical, biomedical, etc.), economics, business, design, public policy or similar. You’ll spend 9 weeks over the year 2020 learning about the latest cutting edge technologies from Europe’s top Universities + developing and prototyping new solutions in a multidisciplinary and international team.

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.

EIT Health and its partners will sponsor each selected participant with:

  • 15,000€ tuition fee

  • 3,000€ travel grant
