InovaHC, the technological innovation center at Hospital das Clínicas of the FMUSP, is a catalyst for health innovation connecting researchers, entrepreneurs, students and resources in order to generate solutions that make the journey of education, research and care more intuitive, efficient and iterable.
They are people innovating for people! Collaborative innovation is InovaHC’s biggest bet. The foundation of this movement is built through the implementation of a structure that supports the activities of the ecosystem, from the construction of driving policies to the definition of environments that encourage co-creation, collaboration and innovation.
The Technological Innovation Center – InovaHC, created in October 2014, has the main objective of encouraging innovation within the scope of HCFMUSP, managing the intellectual property generated in this environment, and providing means to promote the transfer of scientific, technological and cultural knowledge to the productive public and private sector, aiming at improving health. This general purpose is in accordance with state and federal laws, which are motivated to make technological innovation a strategic component of economics and development.
To this end, InovaHC seeks to implement a structure that supports all activities related to technology transfer and support for technology-based entrepreneurship. This initiative aligned with the Health Innovation Policy of the São Paulo State Department of Health (SES-SP), the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo (FMUSP), and other Scientific and Technological Institutions of the State of São Paulo (ICTESPs), and its main perspective is to assume a relevant and transforming role in the state and national health scenario.
