Including the use of big data, digital health, wearables and electronic health records in healthcare and research – is rapidly emerging and radically changing medical practice.
Despite impressive experimental results, concrete AI implementation in routine patient care is not yet common practice. Innovative ideas strand due to a lack of support systems and knowledge in valorisation and business development within higher education institutions (HEIs). For an innovative concept to mature through the complete innovation funnel, knowledge and support is required with respect to legal, ethical, financial and business-case-building aspects.

The main objective of innovAId is to increase the innovation and entrepreneurial capacity within the University Medical Center Utrecht, Medical University Gdansk, PXL University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Lisbon School of Nursing and the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. The project aims to do this by developing and strengthening the ecosystem surrounding digital health innovation in the four European regions where the HEIs are located. These HEIs are supported by the company AI4MED and the start-up incubator UtrechtInc.
