Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biomedical Engineering



The University of Barcelona has created a new Master's Degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biomedical Engineering. This master's degree has been introduced in coordination with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT-Health), in the framework of the European Union, and as part of the Research and Innovation Programme (Horizon 2020). It forms part of the Master Technological Innovation in Health (MTiH) programme offered by EIT-Health.
The main aim of this master's degree is to train a new generation of technologists who can transform biomedical innovations into feasible business solutions. The master's degree helps students to develop in-depth knowledge of technologies used in the health sector; the capacity to understand clinical, social and economic aspects; and a broad understanding of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit in the medical technology sector. It is designed to foster technological innovation in the health sector, and to promote business initiatives.

The Master's Degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biomedical Engineering is directed at two main types of students, in line with study programmes in the European Higher Education Area: students with a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering; and students with other bachelor's degrees, preferably in technical or scientific fields.

The master's degree is taught jointly and entirely in English in the faculties of Medicine and Health Sciences, Economics and Business Studies, and Physics.
