OF THE PROGRAM
The mobility module at PhD level in Biomedical Engineering and Health Systems (BEHealSy) is designed to create a new generation of student entrepreneurs to develop innovative devices and services for a healthier Europe. This joint initiative combines strong scientific education, training in entrepreneurship, learning-by-doing pedagogy and mobility schemes.
BEHealSy is designed to equip doctoral students in engineering with multidisciplinary research skills in health systems and the ability to translate research outcomes into innovation and entrepreneurship initiatives. Nine biomedical engineering universities and several industrial partners (IBEC, LEITAT, GE and Medicen) collaborated to develop a strong, unique curriculum that addresses the need for personalised health solutions on all levels – from the cellular through organismic to systemic. The BEHealSy mobility module is based on two EIT-Health funded M.Sc. programs in biomedical engineering: CEMACUBE and MTIH.
BEHealSy is aimed at PhD students already enrolled at a university on the year 2 or 3 in case of a 5 years’ program.
The mobility module includes of 3 major components:
The general entry requirements are:
The individual selection and recommendation to the curriculum, composition and extend of the mobility module will be done by the scientific commitiee of the program based on the student’s project.
