AEROSPACE AND ENERGY AS CATALYST FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY, ICT AND MEDICAL DEVICES FOR HEALTH INNOVATION
At C4H we use the knowledge and experience gained in these sectors of science and technology to provide state-of-the-art medical care and medical devices.qua.
WHAT WAS CROSS4HEALTH
Cross4Health was funded with 5M€ through an INNOSUP grant from the Horizon 2020 program of the European Commission. During three years, Cross4Health supported innovative SME-led projects which leverage technology and know-how from Aerospace, Energy and Creative Industries sectors for the benefit of personalized Healthcare. By launching two Open Calls and two 9-month Acceleration Programmes, the project has supported 60 SMEs to reach closer to the market with their innovative solutions.
In addition, Cross4Health organised several events across Europe including Hackathons, Ideas competitions, workshops, webinars and pitching contests. These opportunities further supported idea creation and collaboration between cross-sectorial European companies.
As the project ended in June 2020, we now look back to the SMEs who participated in the acceleration programmes and events, the success stories of the sub-granted projects and the overall impact of the project.
