Grenoble iDays winners continue their adventure in London.
Laura, Loïc, Maxime, Olivier and Tiffany won the Grenoble edition of the Innovation Days event organised this year in 18 European universities – all partners of EIT Health.
The final stage of the Innovation Days took place at the Imperial College on 11-12 December 2018.
This year, the event was organised in ten European countries and 18 partner universities of EIT Health. The Innovation Days event aims to foster a spirit of innovation among students, encourage multidisciplinary teamwork and stimulate innovation in the field of health and active ageing
A founding member of EIT Health since 2014, the University of Grenoble Alpes organised the first edition of the “Innovation Days” in Grenoble on 14 November 2018 on campus. Open to all master’s and doctoral students at the Grenoble Alpes university site, the “Grenoble iDays” challenges this year focused on artificial intelligence and “aging well”.
For this first edition of Innovation Days at the University of Grenoble Alpes, 45 students and doctoral candidates participated in the “Grenoble iDays” adventure. Divided into nine multidisciplinary teams, they had to be creative and take up one of the six challenges proposed by the Alpes Technopôle on the theme: “How can artificial intelligence contribute to the well-being of the elderly?”
The 1st prize went to the “Lou ” project which responded to the challenge: “How can AI help caregivers?”
The “Lou” project creates an assistant for the caregivers to facilitate their work by organising logistics and coordination between the different employees. In addition, thanks to a connected photo dial (equipped with AI and installed in the elderly person’s home who could interact on an ad hoc basis), the home-help company would have real-time information on the person’s needs.
