European Institute for Innovation & Technology in Health is piloting a NEW programme at the University of Tartu. Together with IdeaLab and Tartu Biotechnology Park, we are introducing SMART-UP LAB.

Smart-Up Lab is an international, interdisciplinary school of innovation and entrepreneurship for people with an idea for development in the area of health and active life. Programme is addressed to students, PhD candidates, entrepreneurs, graduates with a business, technical, medical, design or humanities profile. Smart-Up Lab is a possibility of dynamic development in the area of entrepreneurship and a unique opportunity to design a product or service. During the Smart-Up Lab programme, students will be able to gain knowledge concerning innovations, entrepreneurship and new technologies. They will obtain instructions on skills required for starting your own technology company, including for example how to set up start-up, pitch in front of investors, build prototype. During incubation phase after the project they will have a great opportunity to change their ideas into real business.
How does it work?
Smart-Up Lab programme lasts 4 months. It is integrated into University of Tartu IdeaLab STARTER programme. Participation is FREE and you can earn curricula points.
