Call for Proposals: EIT Health Skills of the Future 2019 - Happy Aging

About EIT Health Campus Since 2016, Campus works with the highest ambition to innovate the delivery of health education, upholding Europe’s excellence as a powerhouse in health innovation. Campus offers various modalities of educational activities, combining technical know-how and best pedagogic practices with a strong focus on challenge-based learning. Campus aims to develop the next generation of health innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders, and ultimately create new professions that are needed to sustain the Eu- ropean Innovation powerhouse. Aside from this, we also empower the individual citizen to manage his/ her own health; such efforts strive toward improving the health and well-being of European Citizens, in line with EIT Health’s key priorities for the promotion of healthy living, active ageing and improving healthcare for all.

Ultimately, the role of Campus is to act as an incubator for innovative educational offerings, build successful programmes that empower and create health innovators and prepare the workforce to respond to innovations in health and healthcare. During the last three years, Campus has built a strong set of activity lines to deliver innovative health education to students, health professionals and executives, entrepreneurs and innovators, and citizens. Some of these educational offerings have already been implemented in the regular curricu- lum, or otherwise adopted by our partners.

For more information, please refer to https://www.eithealth.eu/campus.

All the schools must foster entrepreneurial thinking by increasing awareness of healthy living and active ageing, the expanding market for citizen-centric self-management of health and prevention tools, and other opportunities related to ageing. They must also provide the skills and tools to translate their health and healthcare concepts into an actual business plan and should include a competition for most promising innovation ideas. This should clearly be demonstrated in the school programme submitted.

Each school will have to contribute to EIT Health’s KPIs in education: at least 30 students (a prerequisite for funding) should complete the Summer School and receive an EIT Health Summer School certificate. The programmes should aim to offer transferable credits (ECTS) for students in the second year if the course is re-running. The Campus 2018 Summer Schools will focus on the following themes: Novel Formats and Methods: Summer Schools are encouraged to pilot/test new educational methods, tools and pedagogies to bring about innovation. They should encourage to actively involve students, e.g.

by bringing in their own topics of interest or their own healthcare concepts and carry these forward through the means of the Summer School. Students may be asked to propose their own topic / healthcare concept to pursue at a Summer School which shall then be combined with up-to date entrepreneurship and innovation teaching formats provided by the Summer School. All Summer School proposals should consist of two parts: one general part dedicated to entrepreneurship or innovation, and a second part focusing specifically on a health application. Industry and non-academic partner involvement: Summer Schools are also highly encouraged to involve industry partners and other non-academic stakeholder (hospitals and other healthcare providers (HCPs), insurance companies, municipalities) as much as possible, as this is extremely beneficial for students’ exposure and advancement.

Cross-Pillar Integration: Campus 2018 Summer Schools shall put a strong focus on the integration of the different EIT Health pillars (Campus, Accelerator, Innovation Projects). Summer Schools shall be organised such that the best business ideas and themes feed into the EIT Health Accelerator. For example, the inflow of business cases can come from individual participating students, but also from industrial partners directly involved in running upcoming EIT Health Innovation Projects. Reapplications: Reapplying Summer Schools are welcome to apply, however they need to address novel elements.

As such please address the novelties of your application, as follows: - How is this 2018 Summer School different from the previous year? What is innovative about it? - Will you involve different or more partners in 2018, new regions as well? - Please address how the Summer School can become sustainable in the future. Will you include additional external funding over time? Please describe the financial model.

Funding Model We have developed a funding model that meets the requirements of the development of new Summer Schools but also provides re-applications of schools. A minimum of 30K will be attributed to each selected Summer School (a minimum of 10 days teaching and 5 ECTS). - Prevention and lifestyle interventions - Digital transformation in the context of health - Health entrepreneurship and health innovation Publication of Call: 14 December 2018 Submission deadline: 20 February 2019, 16.00 CET Call for Proposals: EIT Health Skills of the Future 2019

A minimum of 30K will be attributed to each selected Summer School (a minimum of 10 days teaching and 5 ECTS). - Prevention and lifestyle interventions - Digital transformation in the context of health - Health entrepreneurship and health innovation Background and Purpose Campus activities are about advancing knowledge, skills and competences – going from “knows” to “knows-how” to “shows-how” to launch ideas into action and value-creation.

Newly introduced in 2019, Campus has identified specific skills needs relevant for all Campus target groups. These skills needs result from the “Health Skills of the Future: EIT Health Education Needs Analysis”, which identifies the necessary skills and competencies that the future health and healthcare workforce – including Entrepreneurs, Intrapreneurs and Innovators – need to uphold European health education as an innovation powerhouse for Europe. This analysis was conducted strategically, to help EIT Health reach its highest impact by targeting specific skills needs and determining which skills EIT Health should emphasise.

The findings of this study resulted in identification of the skill categories that are needed most to train the future healthcare workforce . Using the EIT Health Education Needs Analysis as a guide, the enclosed deferred Call for Needs-Based Education 2019 seeks to address important skills required for the future Health and Healthcare workforce to be strengthened in the Campus portfolio in the coming years. The following call will focus on specific skills and learning outcomes, which are described in more detail below. The Intrapreneurship Call segment will focus primarily on Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship skills, while the Needs-based Education Call segment will focus on digital and data literacy, inter-personal and citizen-oriented skills and health system skills.

The deferred Call for EIT Health Skills of the Future 2019 consists of the following two segments: I. Intrapreneurship Programmes II. Needs-based Education fostering the skills of the future Health Workforce (I) Intrapreneurship Programmes: What we are looking for This segment of the Call for Proposals is a collaborative effort with the EIT Health Accelerator. The Accelerator pillar is a business creation programme, set up to support the best and brightest health industry entrepreneurs. To tackle the future challenges of European healthcare, EIT Health Accelerator creates a favourable environment for innovation, providing skills and services to get promising business ideas into the market.

EIT Health is seeking EIT Health partners from universities, research institutes, industry and healthcare providers to collaborate together and co-develop an Intrapreneurship Programme, with the ambition to create a new generation of “intrapreneurs”. These intrapreneurs are usually entrepreneurial employees within industry, healthcare providers or other non-academic partners – people with the mind-set, skills and abilities needed to actively implement innovations within their companies, whether as mid-level or top-level employees. Specifically, the Programme will lead employees of multiple non-academic, industry and healthcare providers to drive health innovations in line with their organisations’ strategic objectives, leading to the creation of real outcomes and solutions fitting the organisation’s needs for health innovation.

The EIT Health Intrapreneurship Programme should be developed and delivered with the strong collaboration and co-development of industry partners, healthcare providers or the companies with which the intrapreneurs are employed. The Programme should consist of targeted entrepreneurship modules, hands-on, learning-by-doing workshops and other interactive offerings. They should show participants how to go through the ideation process of developing solutions to challenges, finally leading them to pitch solutions to their employers and to discuss the potential adoption of the ideas within the organisations.

Ultimately, the Intrapreneurship Programme will empower participating employees to become intrapreneurs in close collaboration and support from their employers, in such a way that would allow an employee to test and bring an idea to the market without the usual bureaucratic bottlenecks often found in their organisations’ processes.

In terms of concrete outcomes from an Intrapreneurship Programme, after the completion of the programme, participants should not only be inspired, but beyond that, they should be able to create value for their company by generating new ideas and internal problem-solving, leading to new products and services being launched on the market. In doing so, these Intrapreneurs will also foster a culture of innovation within their organisations. These newly equipped Intrapreneurs will be drivers of innovation within their teams, able to anticipate new challenges and help their organisation to thrive in the future.

All the schools must foster entrepreneurial thinking by increasing awareness of healthy living and active ageing, the expanding market for citizen-centric self-management of health and prevention tools, and other opportunities related to ageing. They must also provide the skills and tools to translate their health and healthcare concepts into an actual business plan and should include a competition for most promising innovation ideas. This should clearly be demonstrated in the school programme submitted.

Each school will have to contribute to EIT Health’s KPIs in education: at least 30 students (a prerequisite for funding) should complete the Summer School and receive an EIT Health Summer School certificate.

It is also critical for the Programmes to clearly connect learners to both Accelerator and Innovation pillars. Intrapreneurship is a logical link between the pillars, and proposals should therefore strongly present a plan to address Knowledge Triangle Integration. Further details and requirements for Intrapreneurship Programmes: 1. Target Group: participants should be employees coming from multiple industry, healthcare providers, or other non-academic partners. Note that Programmes proposing to train employees from only one non-academic partner are not eligible to apply. The participating employees should come from two or more non-academic partners.

2. Skills Offered to participants: Digital and data literacy; Inter-personal and citizen-oriented skills; health system skills; entrepreneurship with special focus on intrapreneurship. 3. Learning Outcomes: Participants from Intrapreneurship Programmes shall acquire the following learning outcomes, among others: • Gain knowledge about entrepreneurship (including social entrepreneurship) and creativity; and interdisciplinary team work. • Gain knowledge and understanding about real-life challenges related to the future of the healthcare sector, its stakeholders and the complexity of healthcare systems.

• Gain knowledge about trials and decision-making in healthcare related to product and service development.

• Gain knowledge about the developments required to make healthcare systems more efficient, through the adaptation of change management (for example hospitals’ challenge to use and absorb all the data being generated through advances in technology). • Gain knowledge to develop and create innovative products and services within the participant’s company (e.g. identify and empower intrapreneurs with the latest insights and/ or through community building to improve health innovation capacity within Europe) and their commercialisation.

• Be empowered to introduce an idea into a company venture within the chosen challenge or topic and create real value to society (i.e.

identify a real need in the healthcare sector). • Have the potential to share synergies across all pillars of EIT Health: Campus, Accelerator and Innovation Projects. 4. Curriculum & Pedagogical Model: describes the training delivery of the course or training and describes through which model the learning outcomes are delivered to the learners. The Intrapreneurship Programme should run at least several weeks, with participants working on real- life solutions to health challenges relevant to their organisations. The Programme should consist of targeted entrepreneurship modules, hands-on, learning-by-doing workshops and other interactive offerings to go through the ideation process of developing solutions to challenges, finally leading to pitch solutions to their employers, to discuss the potential adoption of the ideas within the organisations.

5. Impact/KPIs:describestherequirementsforreachinghigherimpactacrossallCampusa ctivities.We encourage partners to focus on KPIs such as: number of Products (goods or services) or processes launched on the market; Number of products brought forward by your project that reach market readiness, and other customized KPIs describing the delivery of the participants’ intrapreneurial solutions to innovate within their organisation following the Programme. 6. Industry or non-academic partner involvement: It is mandatory for partners to involve actively at least one industry or other non-academic partner (such as a healthcare provider, insurance company, etc.) due to the nature of an Intrapreneurship Programme.
