This event welcomes undergraduate and postgraduate students who are interested in health innovation. Throughout the event, you will attend inspiring lectures, collaborate in mixed teams from KI's different educational programs, and learn how to apply the so-called design thinking methodology, a method based on the designer's way of working to address users' needs. Additionally, you will receive pitch coaching to enhance your ability to effectively present your solutions to a panel of judges.

The aim is to give you an understanding of innovation to carry with you through your studies and into your careers. Don't miss this chance to engage with the process and be a part of finding solutions.
