Innovation Day for KI students
On Friday 18 November, EIT Health Innovation Day 2016 will take place at KI. The students will participate a day event on how innovation and entrepreneurship can improve health care. Through inspiring talks and design thinking exercises that target current health challenges emerging around us, the students will gain tools for carrying health innovation with them into their careers.
Innovation Day begins with an inspirational lecture, then the students will tackle and solve problems in interdisciplinary groups on future health challenges. The results will be compiled and evaluated competitively and displayed through social media for further sharing and development. The afternoon, in cooperation with Openlab, will be an interactive and interprofessional intro to the Design Thinking process and tools. The day ends with an innovation pub organized by MF, the medical student association.
