Continuous innovation in healthcare ensures the most accurate and patient-oriented implementation of patient care, diagnosis, or prevention. But how do these innovations born, what kind of knowledge, professional experience and tools are needed for this? During the course we are going to answer all these questions.
Our goal is to transfer the knowledge, skills and practice that are needed for the elaboration and successful implementation of an idea based on a real market need within the healthcare sector. From the identification of the need, in addition to the validation of the idea and the involvement and analysis of the aspects necessary for the development, we will guide you through the whole process ending with the appropriate presentation of the solution proposal.
Those who enrol the course will have a unique opportunity to take part in a real project-based challenge. Participants will work in teams and in order to earn a grade, at the end of the course the teams will have to present their idea and chosen solution in the form of a presentation to external experts.
