What is CRAASH Barcelona?


CRAASH Barcelona is a 12-week program that helps European research teams launch successful device, diagnostic and e/digital health innovations to improve health and patient care.


Teams move research to market through mentoring from experts at CIMIT (Boston), the most experienced health accelerator in the world. In 15 years, CIMIT has successfully accelerated over 600 healthtech projects, doubled the rate of successful commercialization and cut the time to next phase by more than half.

CRAASH Barcelona is organized by Biocat in collaboration with both CIMIT and EIT Health. It is one of the flagship programs of Moebio, Biocat’s initiative for acceleration and innovation.
