The EU-backed European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) is launching summer schools to train the health tech leaders of tomorrow.
The summer schools, held in locations across Europe, focus on 13 areas where technology could radically improve healthcare.
It is hoped that new technologies could foster healthier lifestyles, change our approach to data science and create new digital solutions to mobility, ageing and even chronic diseases.
Ursula Mühle, director of education at EIT Health, said: “Allowing our participants the opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in health innovation, and develop cutting-edge skills, is crucial to the growth of our sector.
“Our summer school courses are tailor-made and are a crucial building block of the further educational programming provided by EIT Health. We are proud to play a role in educating the health leaders of tomorrow.”

The schools are open to students and young professionals across Europe with the aim of “implanting innovation into their knowledge base and skillset”.
The focus is to help future technology developers create business plans that could attract investment.
Summer school classes explore subjects such as how data science can prepare developers for the health challenges of the future, how edtech tools can foster healthier lifestyles, and AI in healthcare.
Registrations for the summer school are open between April and July, and the courses will take place between May and September.
