i-Days or also known as Innovation Days are 1 to 2-day events that aim to encourage and promote health innovation amongst students. Students receive an introduction to practical health innovation tools and work in multidisciplinary teams to tackle real life health challenges in healthy living and active ageing. The 2016 and 2017 i-Days provided training and inspiration to hundreds of students in three CLCs. In 2018 we wish to scale these i-Days to include students from all EIT Health CLCs and strengthen the i-Days network across Europe. In Germany, BioM and the RWTH Aachen University are running their own days on the 17thand 19thof November respectively.
