LSMU Alumnus, Cardiologist Arnas Karužas: Experience in the EIT Jumpstarter Programme

< Back

LSMU University, in cooperation with KTU Startup Space, coordinates the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Hub. Each year, the EIT Health community extends invitations to health innovators and enthusiasts to engage in diverse programs, events, and meetings.

Today, we’re introducing a programme designed to inspire you to transform your innovative ideas into thriving businesses. This program has been tried and tested by our university alumnus, Arnas Karužas, a co-founder of the startup Ligence, marking the beginning of their breakthrough journey. Discover more about it here.

And over a cup of coffee, we invite you to join a conversation with cardiologist and innovator Arnas Karužas: Why is artificial intelligence essential in cardiology? What does it take to turn an idea into reality? Find out what it takes to get an innovative idea off the ground. You can find the interview here.

We invite you to participate with your innovative idea in the EIT Health Community Call.
