EIT Health Innovation Day - 18 November 2017

The EIT Health Innovation Day 2017 took place on 18 November 2017 at the Oxford Foundry, the brand new, exciting entrepreneurial and innovation hub created for the University of Oxford community.

The overarching theme of the day was mental health. The day covered all aspects of mental health issues, from tackling student mental health challenges to improving life for those suffering from dementia. Dr Jeroen Bergmann gave the keynote address, introducing the design thinking concept with relevance to mental health innovation.

The day was a fully facilitated hackathon, designed to tackle and resolve challenges in the field of healthcare. It involved participants brainstorming, getting inspired by industry leading speakers and working in teams to create solutions for the challenges presented.

Participating teams competed for a range of financial and entrepreneurial prizes. These included automatic entry into restricted Entrepreneurship Centre programmes to further develop and enhance the best ideas from the day. Participants did not have to be experts in healthcare or business to contribute their insights and ideas – in fact, some of the brightest solutions were found in the most unthinkable corners.
