EU Project Partners

IdeasLab are involved in a broad portfolio of innovation and entrepreneurial EU projects. Our current projects include: 

i2i connects five higher education institutions (HEIs), three intermediary organisations, and eight associated partners in five entrepreneurial ecosystems. The overall vision and ambition of the i2i consortium is to address its capacity and capability to foster entrepreneurial thinking, actions and institutions. The project also aims to develop entrepreneurship capital and aptitude for driving innovation, building on the strengths and weaknesses of each partner identified through the HEInnovate self-assessment.

The Women Entrepreneurship Bootcamp connects early-stage, women-led or co-led healthcare start-ups to an unparalleled network of mentors in order to nurture and support rapid growth.

We’ll help you leverage the diversity in your leadership team to achieve the best possible outcomes for your start-up. This programme will also help you find the reference points you need to successfully frame your ambition and validate your value proposition. The Women Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is a five-week programme – providing intensive training, mentoring and networking opportunities in Galway (Ireland), Coimbra (Portugal) and Barcelona (Spain).

SCI FI is a skills based innovation and entrepreneurship programme to support young scientists (Phd and Postdoc) to thrive as an innovator in the healthcare industry. Transitioning from academic research to working in the pharma and medtech industries can be challenging. This course helps you overcome that challenge with the guidance of academic and industry partners, so that you can learn from real-life cases and have the opportunity to work with experienced mentors.

IdeasLab is a proud i-Days partner. i-Days promote health innovation among university students through dozens of one-day and two-day programmes held in academic institutions around Europe. Students from all academic areas receive an introduction to practical health innovation tools and compete in teams to tackle real-life health challenges posed by EIT Health, local organisations, private corporations or start-ups. The winning team of each i-Day will attend the Winners’ Event, a final competition that unites students from around Europe.
