What to expect from the programme


What do you get


"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."
