9th July 2019
The Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in Health Innovation (WE Health) project has announced the launching of the online registration for its first Capacity-Building Module, which will take place at Karolinska Institutet on the 19, 20 and 21 of June 2017.
The WE Health capacity-building programme is built around the principles of multidisciplinary teamwork, action learning and strong mentoring. The programme combines a theoretical and practice-based learning, using real industry projects from the medical, health and technology sectors. Along with the programme, inspirational talks and success stories from women leading innovation in health are organized to share experiences and connect with the WE Health Network.
At the end of this programme, participants will have gained insights into the challenges of a women entrepreneur, made a plan of action and taken the first steps towards realizing their potential as health innovator.
The Capacity-Building programme is organized by leading academic institutions and is composed of three modules, complementary to each other, but self-standing. Participants can select the module that better fits their needs; however, we strongly encourage participants to attend the three modules to make the most of the WE Health programme. No participation fees are required; however, participants will have to cover their travel costs. A limited amount of scholarships are available to the EIT Health Alumnae to support travel and accommodation costs.
