New Scholarship to Inspire Health Innovation

Leap for Life has established a new scholarship with a clear focus on health innovation. The scholarship aims to encourage students at Halmstad University to develop sustainable solutions for societal challenges currently present in the healthcare sector.

Leap for Life believes in the power of young innovators and their ability to change the future. Through the newly established health innovation scholarship, Leap for Life aims to encourage students at Halmstad University to create solutions that can transform the future of health, care, and welfare. The idea is that the scholarship will stimulate creative thesis work that results in a new working method, product, or service.

"We see enormous potential in the university's young innovators. Through this scholarship, we hope to promote and strengthen their ideas, which hopefully can lead to crucial changes within the healthcare sector in the future," says Simon Holmesson, Operations Manager at Leap for Life.

Criterias and Application Process

The scholarship targets students at Halmstad University, regardless of program, who have completed a thesis focused on health innovations. The scholarship committee includes representatives from Halmstad University, the municipalities of Halland, and Region Halland, who will evaluate the applications based on creativity, relevance, and potential to impact the healthcare sector. The scholarship will be awarded during the university's graduation fair, Utexpo, 30 May.

Health Innovation in Focus

One of the university’s focus areas is health innovation—a comprehensive approach that encompasses research, education, and collaboration with the aim of developing solutions within the health sector.

A significant platform within this initiative is Leap for Life, which serves as a collaborative arena for health innovation in Halland. Here, efforts from Halmstad University, Region Halland, the Halland municipalities, and the business sector are gathered to collectively drive the development of healthcare.

"Leap for Life brings together academia, business, the public sector, and civil society to jointly drive innovation and change within health, care, and welfare," Simon Holmesson concludes.
