About this Campus Summer School: In the health landscape, there is an increasing demand to boost students’ ability to develop innovative solutions for health-related challenges in direct collaboration with all public and private stakeholders and end users of all kinds.

Five universities, six private (one CRO) and three public partners that reside in three major European cities and two co-location centres, who have in depth expertise in health, economics, policy and innovation hereby join forces to refine their societal role in response to the challenges that are put forward by EIT Health. In particular this course will:

  • Share and implement best pedagogic and digital-didactic practices
  • Organize a sustainable network for faculty exchange on pedagogics and handling interdisciplinary groups
  • Enable interaction between students and alumni from different locations
  • Establish connections to local academic education offerings on health and innovation
  • Translate ideas and solutions into further implementation through EIT Health Accelerators

The triple-summer school aims to deliver interdisciplinary learning-by-doing education and tools for innovative processes to graduates and health care professionals. In addition, the schools will enhance direct interaction with the public and private sector to stimulate the participants’ community engagement.

Target: 24-30 students per location, graduate and postgraduate students, professionals, researchers and teachers.
