Open call - EIC ePitching to Procurers on COVID19

The European Innovation Council is organising a second ePitching to Procurers-session on COVID-19 in mid November 2020. The goal is to connect public and private procurers from the health sector with EIC-funded companies providing medical supply and innovative technologies (e.g. tele-medicine, remote solutions, artificial intelligence for data analysis and prediction, supply chain management, logistics) as a solution to the COVID-19 pandemic. This specific call is solely for public and private procurers interested in participating.

Are you a hospital or a public or private healthcare procurer interested in participating? Register now by sending us an e-mail to or by 25 September 2020.

In order to best serve procurers' needs, these are kindly requested to fill in their needs in a document (see Excel-sheet here) so that companies whose innovations best fit these needs are selected.

1. Medical devices supply chain and logistics management: EIC companies with medical devices to help the COVID19 outbreak
