About this Campus Summer School: euVENTION’s overall goal is to improve prevention and treatment options for middle-aged (50-70-year-old) people, threatened by or suffering from chronic diseases (diabetes, coronary heart diseases, psychological disorders). Before the Summer School begins, participants are trained through the MOOC, called: Healthy Ageing in 6 Steps. On site in Heidelberg, teams of three-to-five participants work jointly to overcome challenges in combining prevention and treatment of chronic diseases with modern and active lifestyles. euVENTION generates actionable results while qualifying participants to use state of the art innovation methods (design thinking, rapid prototyping, business modelling) for future healthcare related endeavours. At the end of euVENTION, participants will have run through all phases of a real-world innovation project.

Target: Master, PhD and MD students with different backgrounds are recruited. They form cross-functional teams, with at least one person with a life science/medical, one person with a business, and one person with a social science background. A committee selects 30 to 40 European top-talents, considering their background, motivation, experience and diversity.
