The EIT Health Innovation Day is organized in several universities across Europe. In 2018, the event gathered more than 100 students from different programmes at Karolinska Institutet. The purpose of the day is to give students an initial first-hand experience of innovation and entrepreneurship and to increase the interaction between academic education, the public sector and the industry.

Previous years the event has been organized by the Unit for Bioentrepreneurship with support from students, mainly from the master programme in bioentrepreneurship. This year we wanted to try something different by letting a group of students taking the lead in organizing the event with the support of KI staff.
