Sign up today for the EIT Health Summer School

11-22 September 2017
Heidelberg, Germany

This Summer School is a two-week program that covers all the necessary steps and tools to create your own startup.

Before the Summer School begins, participants are trained through the MOOC ‘Healthy Ageing in 6 Steps’. On site in Heidelberg, teams of three-to-five participants work jointly to overcome challenges brought in by companies or yourself that cover prevention and treatment of chronic diseases with modern and active lifestyles. euVENTION generates actionable results while qualifying participants to use state of the art innovation methods (design thinking, rapid prototyping, business modelling) for future healthcare related endeavors. At the end of euVENTION, participants will have run through all phases of a real-world innovation project.

Background: This Summer School is an initiative within EIT Health’s euVENTION. The overall goal is to improve prevention and treatment options for middle-aged (50-70-year-old) people, threatened by or suffering from chronic diseases (diabetes, coronary heart diseases and psychological disorders).
Target group: Master, PhD and MD students with different backgrounds are welcome. Furthermore, dedicated and motivated individuals can apply. They form cross-functional teams, with at least one person with a life science/medical, one person with a business, and one person with a social science background.
Challenges: Challenges are questions or issues raised by companies or by young professionals and scholars for which they would want a solution that results in an innovation (product or service).
Scholarships: Participation is free of charge. For travel and accommodation costs, you can apply for scholarships. The final amount will be determined after the selection process has finished.
Location: Marsilius-Kolleg, Heidelberg University’s institutional hub for interdisciplinary collaboration
