The next generation of health innovators also attended the EIT Health Summit
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:
- Master in Innovation in Healthcare (IHC)
- International Master Programme in Innovative Medicine (IMIM)
- Master of Technological Innovation in Health (MTIH)
- Common European Master’s Course in Biomedical Engineering (CEMACUBE)
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.
