eHealth Innovation Centre

Welcome to the Center for Innovation and eHealth, EIC, the Department of Health Sciences, Luleå University. EIC is Luleå University and Norrbotten County Council's joint research center that works to find new care smart solutions in eHealth. This is done in collaboration with the Association of Municipalities and county municipalities and companies. Our mission is to find regional partners for our innovative solutions and to get them to grow.

The EIC creates innovative products, services and processes that are firmly rooted in a unique research environment that combines the health sciences, computer science and electrical engineering. It has strong track record in international research projects, and focuses on industrial growth and products.

The EIC is recognized internationally as a center of excellence in the areas of health and wellbeing, where information and communication technology (ICT) is used to bring the best possible care to people at home or wherever they need to be.

To support innovative ideas, we allocate resources and, to some extent, funding in collaboration with our existing partners. Ideas may come from researchers, creative innovators, and nursing and healthcare staff. We also support regional businesses working within eHealth.

Our website offers information about our operations and about both completed and ongoing projects. If you have a smart idea within eHealth, do not hesitate to contact us. Call the research manager or the director at EIC or send a brief description to info.eic@ltu.se.
