The Project

Over 1200 finished Health projects – ready to be commercialized

The EU-Health Innovation Marketplace is an online community where Innovation Providers (like research centres, universities and research groups) and Innovation Developers (like big pharma and biotech companies) can meet each other.

Here they will find an overview of promising health research results that have gone through extensive evaluation. By hooking up ‘market demand’ with ‘innovation supply’, these results are only one step away from successful commercialization. To make life easier for developers and innovators, UTILE is currently analysing all previously granted Health projects in FP7 and H2020 to identify the research results with the highest potential for translation and exploitation. This analysis is being conducted by a pan-European and international team of the most successful and experienced health focused Technology Transfer Offices, with the direct engagement of actual market end-users (biotech, pharma, investors) in Europe and the USA.

Through an inventory of best practices and by implementing and promoting this Marketplace, UTILE will foster the sustainable exploitation of current and future Health project outcomes, gather data from the demand and supply sides, and encourage and promote dialog and collaboration.

In addition, UTILE is organising a series of offline activities to its users such as workshops and roundtables at international conferences, brokerage events, technology valorisation courses and trainings. Special attention will be given to the participation of start-ups, SMEs and the involvement of Low Performing Countries.
