EIT Health Innovation Days


The EIT Health Innovation Days is funded by the European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) and aims at promoting innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe. A consortium of 21 partners all across Europe host a number in many different locations, coordinated by the Imperial College in London. In late 2019, the IMA will organize Aachen’s second Innovation Day. In this one-day Design Thinking Workshop, students of all subjects are invited to tackle a challenge in health in interdisciplinary teams. They are introduced to Design Thinking as creative and user-centered method. In a structured process, they generate ideas in creative phases in order to then implement them as simple prototypes to test and adapt iteratively. A team of trained facilitators guides the teams through their individual design processes and a health start-up gives insights into the opportunities and challenges in entrepreneurship in this sector. At the end of the day, an expert jury will chose the best idea
