Forty students graduate from EIT Health Master’s programmes

6th December 2019

The next generation of health innovators also attended the EIT Health Summit

Forty graduates from the four EIT Health Master’s programmes that have the EIT Label celebrated their graduation at a 1 December 2019 ceremony held at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, France.

The ceremony was opened by Jan-Philipp Beck, CEO of EIT Health, who spoke of the opportunities for graduates to contribute to EIT Health’s activities through the Accelerator and Innovation pillars.

Graduates and their relatives attended the ceremony, along with the directors of the four Master’s programmes:

All of these programmes have been awarded the EIT Label, which goes to Master and Doctoral programmes combining excellent scientific education with innovation and entrepreneurship training. EIT-Labelled degrees encourage innovative pedagogies and also incorporate mandatory mobility schemes for students. Graduates of EIT-Labelled degrees form the next generation of health innovators. In 2019, a total of 52 Master’s students graduated from EIT Health Master’s degree programmes, bringing the total number of EIT Health graduates since 2018 to 87.

The event was held the day before the EIT Health Summit, in the same venue, so that the graduates could also attend that event.
