At October 1st 2013 the Elevate project started as a spin-off from the UMC Utrecht in order to develop evidence based online education to health care practitioners and researchers in the Health and Life Sciences domain.
By February 1st 2015 Utrecht University launched the first accredited online Master, the post-graduate Master Epidemiology. This master has been developed by Elevate and UMC Utrecht division Julius Center.
Developing rapidly Elevate, as a social impact driven enterprise, strives to carry out the following mission.
“Elevate aims to increase knowledge and understanding of health and life sciences among practitioners and medical researchers across the globe. In doing so, we hope to improve overall wellbeing and reduce the differences in standards of medical care between countries.”
Over the past few years Elevate has grown adding its own Virtual Learning Environment, a range of online courses (SPOCs and MOOCs) and services such as blended education advisory.
Apart from its founding fathers UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University Elevate has a broad portfolio of clients, surpassing its Utrecht Science Parc homebase, including universities, hospitals, knowledge centres, interest groups and private organisations.
Last but not least we are a partner in many research- and education projects within the Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020 subsidized frameworks.
Our Team -What drives us-

Our e-moderators guide the participants through the different learning activities we have been developing in our online courses to see them successfully finish their courses.
After all, it is their succes that determines whether we achieve!
