The Industry & Innovation Day is part of the yearly Spring School which focuses on the students' personal development and growth, and their acquisition of soft skills.

The aim of the Industry & Innovation Day is to foster interaction between biomedical students, IMIM management and industry. The third year of the Industry & Innovation Day will start with the Merck visit in Darmstadt which will be followed with an opening dinner. Industry representatives will have a chance to discuss potential cooperation with IMIM and EIT Health as well as the opportunities to recruit a talented student for an internship in their company. During the second day, students’ will have the chance to join workshops tailored to improve their presenting, communication, and networking skills. With the support of EIT Health, several contributors from small, medium-sized and large industries will be invited. During the Industry from the Inside session industry representatives will give short talks to provide a perspective on their work and company activities. The last day of the event will be dedicated to Career Perspectives.
