HAEPP - Health Axis Europe Partnering Platform

HAEPP - Health Axis Europe Partnering Platform

The HAEPP project aims at bundling the innovative strengths of science and industry. It will provide a new tool for international knowledge exchange, leading to facilitated technology transfer between academia and small- and medium-sized enterprises on the one side and global healthcare companies on the other side.

The Health Axis Europe Partnering Platform (HAEPP) project partners are Ci3, BioRN, the University of Applied Sciences Mannheim, University Heidelberg (Research Campus M2OLIE), and the Health Axis Europe cluster partners KU Leuven, Maastricht University and University of Copenhagen. Starting in January 2018, the project partners will develop and validate the Health Axis Partnering Platform over a period of two years. The aim is the long-term implementation of the platform after this period.

The HAEPP has two key advantages over existing partnering and scouting models:

  • tailor-made: only projects that fit the specific search profile of the global healthcare company are presented
  • critical mass: projects are scouted from a large pool of innovators (not just regional, not just national, but international scouting).
