European healthcare systems face increasing pressure due to ageing populations and the rise of chronic diseases. The Covid-19 pandemic has even aggravated the situation, also because it led to a higher number of undiagnosed and untreated medical conditions. The report ‘Health in the 21st Century’ regards digital technologies as a means to cope with these and future challenges and as a driver of transformation in the health sector. This, however, requires coordinated efforts of digital health Universities as key knowledge stakeholders in the European innovation ecosystem.

The UASHome project aims to promote Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) as innovation and entrepreneurship centers for Digital Health. The project investigates the UAS incubation processes, gathers best practices from UAS incubators in the regional and European level, and creates a program that every UAS incubator could use to further develop their incubation processes. With its four project partners, UASHome aims to create a peer-learning community of UAS incubators and their regional stakeholders. Entrepreneurial mindsets and activities are built together with both students and academic staff members.
