EAMBES Fellows- Competence amplification for Innovation



Service ID:

Service description

An ongoing service for EIC Transition and Accelerator beneficiaries. The EMBEic service aims to support EIC beneficiaries by giving them access to Europe’s leading clinical and biomedical engineering researchers through the EAMBES Fellows Network. This network offers a range of complementary competences that can help evaluate and test beneficiaries’ product ideas. In this service EAMBES Fellows network will help EIC beneficiaries through any of three different mentorship packages: 

1) Propel Monitoring: intensive guidance tailored for applicants to the EIC Pathfinder and Accelerator programs; 

2) Extended Support: extended assistance for project development; 

3) Idea Accelerator Consultation: support designed for innovators and start-ups to rapidly assess, refine, and strategize the development of their ideas. A dedicated search engine, supported by a comprehensive database, is offered as a tool to identify key experts and opinion leaders in the network, matching their expertise and knowledge with interest in innovation projects. The service is implemented in a hybrid mode. 

These packages are further explained here:
