The program extends over several months and offers both virtual events and reciprocal on-site visits. For ten selected German Research-SME-Tandems, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft offers a delegation trip to the U.S. (Matchmaking Tour) and a workshop on research project funding and financing opportunities (Idea2Project Workshop). Conversely, potential U.S. partners are offered a trip to Germany (German R&D Tour) to learn more about German health research. In addition, a webinar series will be held between December 2020 and May 2021 under the motto “Well informed to tap the U.S. healthcare market”.
One of the highlights of “InnoHealth” is the five-day matchmaking tour to the U.S. The ten selected German Research-SME-Tandems will hold visits there to companies, universities and research institutions focusing on digital health in the Silicon Valley/Greater Bay Area and the Boston/Cambridge area (June 7-11, 2021).
