The call is piloting a "Digital Sandbox" initiative aiming to strengthen cooperation between small companies in Europe and quality registers/biobanks. Deadline for the first call is 15 September.
The main purpose of the EIT Health Digital Sandbox Programme is to enable the leveraging of the ‘’Health Data Business’’ area, by supporting SMEs in realizing next steps towards the development of relevant products and services through the involvement of, and collaboration with, Biobanks, Sample Holders and Quality Registers, in Europe.
The activities could include:
- Data access and data exploitation
- Completion/acquisition of necessary ethical approval(s)

- Understanding and complying with requirements pertaining to adherence to Biobanks/Registers guidelines
- Proof of concept, validation and development
- Preparation work for subsequent participation to EIT Health programmes such as Headstart (Commercialisation), European Health Catapult (Business plan competition) and mainly Innovation Projects
Important KPIs here is to increase number of projects within EIT Health who collaborate with healthcare, who are internalized into clinical practice on a broad term and show both improved quality and reduced costs within healthcare. Furthermore new knowledge, improved working routines within sample holders, biobanks and registers are also within the scope of targeted goals.
