A joint effort between study programmes and practice has always been vital to the health sector. Through Cobox, we wish to share experiences from this collaboration that focus specifically on health innovation.
The aim of Cobox is to facilitate collaborations between education and practice in the health sector. Cobox is short for the Collaboration Health Innovation Toolbox.
The advantage of this type of collaboration is that departments and companies in the health sector gain access to networks, knowledge and inspiration from the educational environments, while teachers get committed students and networks among public and private companies in the sector.
If you are interested in establishing a collaboration with a teacher or health professional, please contact your local innovation consultant.

Cobox is part of the E-Lab project funded by EIT Health – a European health innovation network. The objective of E-Lab is to support and promote an innovation and entrepreneurship culture in universities through teaching forms that encourage the participants to immerse themselves in and learn through practical examples with real-life challenges.
Cobox falls under Copenhagen Health Innovation, a strategic collaboration between the Technical University of Denmark, University College Copenhagen, the City of Copenhagen, the Capital Region of Denmark and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.
