EIT Health Innovation Days is a regular event organized by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology in health in 14 regional coordination centers of the Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) across the Europe. In Poland, this role acts Medical University of Gdańsk by the MUG’s Technology Transfer Office.
The Innovation Days initiative involves both the academic environment of all Tri-city universities, including lecturers, students, graduates and PhD students, as well as the business ecosystem (start-ups, companies, entrepreneurship and social engineering trainers).
The idea of the venture is based on the selection of 10 multidisciplinary teams (3-4 persons) with complementary competences (among others: students of medical, IT and social sciences), which will take part in a competition on topics related to ‘Bringing Care Home’. During two blocks of workshops, participants will gain knowledge about ‘Design thinking’ – the process of stimulating creative solutions and ‘Pitching’ – a concise form of idea audio-visual presentation. The selected groups will have the opportunity to present their ideas / prototypes in front of the jury.
Judges as representatives of various environments and disciplines (professors of Tri-city universities, psychologists, entrepreneurship trainers, businessmen) will select three winning teams. The winners of the first prize will also participate in ‘Winners event’, organized by Imperial College and have a chance to compete for the main prize among the laureates from other 14 regional centers (RIS).
We invite students, graduates and PhD students of medical, biotechnology, social and IT sciences as well as management related to all Tri-city universities to take part in the competition.
