Health Innovation - An Interdisciplinary Approach

This is the course for you with interest in learning about health innovations and how your knowledge, skills and ideas can improve and develop health care! 

The course targets students and practitioners from different fields with at least a Bachelor’s degree. The interdisciplinarity is important for the course and for the outcomes. The course will run almost once a week in late afternoons from February until May 2020 consisting of lectures and workshops.

The course is be divided in three blocks:

Developing health innovations: We discuss what health innovations are, and how health innovations can be developed. We learn how to create interdisciplinary teams and how to manage beneficiary’s participation. We deepen our knowledge about what support is available.

Design driven innovation process: We create and develop health innovations through a design process. Working in interdisciplinary teams to develop a health innovation is an integrated part of the course. We also learn about legal and ethical challenges and how to protect and fund health innovations.

Implementation, presentation and examination: We discuss how to implement health innovations and how to pitch innovations for beneficiaries and investors. Each team will present their innovation in front of a professional innovation audit team.

Course start:The course starts on February 5 between 17: 30 and 19: 30 in the Segerstedt building, room: Plantskolan.
