Applications open for Catalyst Europe 2020 – Calling PhD students, Postdocs and Clinicians

Dear all,

I would like to bring your attention to a new program called Catalyst Europe that is open to Postdocs, PhD students (from any technological field related to health) and Clinicians. The program is funded by EIT Health.

This 2020, the FAU is partnering with other European organizations to run the Catalyst Europe 2020, a fellowship program focused on creating impact from biomedical research.

The program supports talented PhD students, postdocs and clinicians to identify and evaluate unmet medical needs, build multi-professional teams to design solutions and plan research projects that show strong potential for healthcare impact, in collaboration with industry and hospitals. Catalyst Europe belongs to the EIT Health Campus pillar, and is based on the MIT linQ Catalyst methodology.

We have now opened Applications for PhD students, Postdocs and Clinicians from any European organization, in any technological and medical domain, to join the 2020 cohort. Applications are open until February 14th. Please find more details about the application process here and the application form here.

We will be running an Informative Webinar on Jan 28th at 4pm CET to provide more details about the Catalyst Europe 2020 edition, the Catalyst methodology from MIT linQ, and the Application Process, aimed at potential candidates, their supervisors, or innovation managers at research centers, hospitals or universities, to solve doubts. Registrations here.

Kind regards,

Victoria Goldberg
