HealthTIES Consortium has been created to promote innovation in healthcare technology and is backed by the European Union. Four top European regions in biosciences, med-tech and health entrepreneurship join forces in HealthTIES project: Medical Delta, Biocat, Life Sciences Zurich and Oxford and Thames Valley. A fifth region, to be mentored by the other partners, is Ëszak-Alföld.

HealthTIES has an innovative way of working: as from the identification of four major disease areas (cardiovascular, cancer, neurodegenerative and immunology and infectious diseases) and three technology platforms (molecular technology, imaging and drug design), the work is focused in the different interactions between them.

One of the main concerns is to speed up the transfer from science to market or, in other words, from idea to product. And, in this sense, we foster the connections between the Triple Helix: academia, industry and government. 

HealthTIES, making the European Union a world-class player in healthcare technology!



d•HEALTH Barcelona is a training program that seeks to create products that address real unmet needs with the collaboration of three main hospitals in Catalonia, Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu and Guttmann Institute. This program puts together fellows from different specialities to accelerate the healthcare technology innovation cycle.
