Innovation Day

Project acronym: i-Day

The aim of i-Day is to boost the entrepreneurial spirit among undergraduate and master’s-level students and thereby kick-start European health innovation. Partners across six CLC's will host their own i-Days at 19 locations across Europe. These events will include inspirational speakers and coaches who will introduce students to practical tools in innovation, design thinking and pitching. Challenges sourced from EIT Health projects or other relevant organisations will be presented and in 2019 student teams in Copenhagen spend 36 hours striving to create solutions to a real life healthcare challenge. Winning i-Day teams are invited to a Winners Event in London including peers from all participating i-Day Universities.
