Health Axis Europe Partnering


The project aims to bundle the innovative strengths of science and industry and will provide a new tool for facilitated international knowledge exchange between academia and small and medium-sized enterprises on the one side and Global Healthcare Companies (GHCs) on the other. It effectively matches innovation seekers with innovators from a broad international network. In the BMBF funded validation phase (2018-2019) a concept of the new matching tool will be developed, tested and validated. The HAEP Team works closely with technology transfer offices and other innovation engines within the network. For further information about the process, check here >>
