Industry & Innovation Day

Industry & Innovation Day

For the first time in 2018 the IMIM Spring School Saturday will be dedicated to industry and innovation and will be joined by second year IMIM students. With the support of EIT Health several contributors from small, medium-sized and large industries will be invited. Events will include workshops on bringing an idea to the market and how to give persuasive presentations, as well as an “Industry from the Inside” panel and a poster session. Please find more information about our speakers here.


The idea is to facilitate the interaction between IMIM students and the industry in an informal setting. During the “Industry from the Inside” session industry representatives will give short talks to provide a perspective on their work and company activities. The industry representatives will have a chance to discuss potential cooperation with IMIM and EIT Health, network with the students during the Poster Session and potentially recruit a talented student for an internship in their company.


Social events, such as lunch and dinner breaks, will further foster networking and interactions between students, IMIM management and industry.
