Moments from past i-Days 

"i-Days are a great opportunity for students who want to innovate in healthcare. Its advantage is the opportunity of working in a multidisciplinary team on a given challenge using newly acquired skills in design thinking, business modelling and presentation techniques. I use them to this day. Thanks to i-Days, I received materials to complete my bachelor's thesis on the creation of an electronic system for monitoring vaccinated children. The win took us to Paris where we could finish our idea and compete with teams from prestigious universities such as the University of Copenhagen or the University of Oxford, was just the icing on the cake."

Jana Prauseova, Member of the winning team at i-Day 2019 in Prague

"Winning the EIT Health i-Day at the DEX-IC Hub was the beginning of my amazing journey with EIT Health. I am now a board member of EIT Health Alumni, and can’t wait to organise similar events with the hub myself."

Dr. Oshin Behl,  Member of the winning team at i-Day 2021 in Prague

As Europeans tackle the challenge of increasing chronic diseases and multi-morbidity and seek to realise the opportunities that technology offers to move beyond conventional approaches to treatment, prevention and healthy lifestyles, we need thought leaders, innovators and efficient ways to bring innovative healthcare solutions to market. EIT Health addresses these needs.
