INNOLABS

For leveraging cross capacity building between
ICT, Health, BIO and Medicine sectors for new
emerging industries in personalized health

 

THE INNOLABS PROJECT

INNOLABS has fostered collaboration, transfer of knowledge and opportunities among SMEs from different countries and sectors in order to develop, improve and deliver disruptive technologies mainly related to mHealth, personalized healthcare and ageing populations.

INNOLABS was a three year project funded by the European Commission through Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation. The project was granted €5 Million with the objective to deliver new products and services for healthcare building upon the capacity from European SMEs belonging to the fields of ICT, Health, BIO and Medicine.

In total, INNOLABS supported and allowed 137 SMEs to elevate their skills and capabilities and bring their products/solutions closer to the market.

As the project ended in October 2019, this post-project website looks back to the achievements and success stories of the project, highlighting the SMEs which participated on the two Innolabs Acceleration Programmes, the organised events and activities and overall the projects’ impact.
