Wellbring to collaborate with EIT ICT Labs Helsinki

Wellbring signed a collaboration agreement to support the development of the Health and Wellbeing (HWB) activity line.

The HWB activity is aimed at helping the local (in this case, Finland, France, Netherland and Italian based) participating Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) to identify new business opportunities within Europe and beyond, and to benefit from the local support ecosystems of four EIT ICT Labs nodes: Helsinki, Paris, Eindhoven and Trento.

 

Through the application process, 3-5 SMEs from Helsinki node will be selected, with the aim of involving them in EIT ICT Labs HWB action line activities – connecting them directly with each other and to other European emerging HWB clusters from the participating nodes. Workshops, events and professional coaching will help SMEs to understand differences between cultures and geographic markets.

 

Chosen SMEs are eligible for financial grants, in part to aid their mobility.

This activity will strongly promote the external visibility and recognition of European SME Health and Wellbeing innovators!
