EIT Health is seeking candidates with leadership experience in the health sector in Europe to serve as new independent members of the Supervisory Board, which is a non-operational board overseeing the management of the organisation. There are currently three independent board member seats vacant.
The EIT Health Supervisory Board plays a vital role in the organisation, and therefore in driving healthcare innovation in Europe, to enable people to live longer, healthier lives. Elected by the Partner Assembly, the Supervisory Board oversees the activities of EIT Health and monitors the definition, approval and fulfilment of the Strategic Agenda. The Board also appoints EIT Health’s CEO and COO, supervises their work and discusses and approves strategic decisions of EIT Health’s Management Board.
Candidates with a passion for health innovation and entrepreneurship who are motivated to contribute to the transformation and sustainability of health systems across Europe are encouraged to apply. EIT Health is looking for candidates that hold a leadership position in the health sector in Europe, who are familiar with policymaking at national or EU level, and have a strong pan-European network of decision-makers in the health sector. Ideally, candidates will have prior board experience. There is a preference for candidates who have experience in financial management, business development, research and innovation, healthcare delivery, patient organisations, and launching health products.
The Supervisory Board seats that EIT Health is currently looking to fill are for “independent members”, which means people who do not hold an interest in an EIT Health partner organisation.
