EIT Health is searching for digital health startups pioneering solutions that can mitigate the everyday impacts of COVID-19. The Headstart initiative is offering support for early stage companies in Europe with ideas that can allow communities and health systems to remain robust – in advance of a vaccine being discovered.

Applications are open to companies developing ‘products or services’ that are at technology readiness level (TRL) eight: a system which is complete and qualified. And selected startups to the programme will get access to €50,000 to roll out their solutions. Apply here by 14 April.

We are tracking information on online challenges, funding calls, and initiatives dedicated to tackling COVID-19. Sign up for our regular newsletters in the box below for all the latest on these and please share relevant details to colleagues and friends to help accelerate solutions.
