On Friday, November 18 Innovation Day for students 2016 will take place at KI.  Here our students, in their semester before exam projects, will participate in an interprofessional & interactive day on how innovation and entrepreneurship can improve health and health care.  Through inspiring talks and design thinking exercises that target current health challenges emerging around us, our 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.
KI’s Innovation Day is one of six EIT Health sponsored Innovation Days on Nov 18-19 2016, within a collaborative network of universities: Uppsala University, Copenhagen University, Imperial College, Oxford University and Newcastle University.
