The International Master in Innovative Medicine (IMIM), focused on the education of tomorrow’s leading translational biomedical researchers, is jointly organized by three European Top 100 Universities: The University of Groningen in the Netherlands, the University of Heidelberg in Germany and Uppsala University in Sweden. 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 second year of the Industry & Innovation Day will start with powerful kickoff keynote speech focused on innovation in healthcare. During the second day, students’ will have the opportunity to join workshops tailored to improve their communication and networking skills. With the support of EIT Health, several contributors from small, medium-sized and large industries will be invited.
