This event is in the past

The IMIM Industry and Innovation Day is part of the yearly Spring School organised by the International Master in Innovative Medicine (IMIM), an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master of Science Programme of the Universities of Groningen, Heidelberg and Uppsala.

Many IMIM Industry and Innovation Days have been supported by EIT Health in the past to give life science and medical students, start-up and pharma industry participants the opportunity to network and explore new ideas in their fields.


The first day will start with a powerful kickoff speech focused on innovation in healthcare. During the weekend students will have the opportunity to join workshops tailored to improve their communication and networking skills, and to present their research ideas during a poster session. They will get insight into life science industry and meet contributors from small, medium-sized and large companies. In addition, during a panel discussion students will learn what it takes to follow different career paths within or beyond academia. The industry representatives will have a chance to discuss potential cooperation with IMIM and EIT Health, network with the students during the poster session and potentially recruit a talented student for an internship in their company.

  • Target participants:
  • Master or PhD students from the Health, Biotechnology or Life Science Sector
  • Professionals from biotech/biopharma companies or biomedical start-ups
