Work with students to develop ideas for products or services around the theme 'Bringing Care Home'.
EIT Health Innovation Day is an intensive 1 day event bringing together students from across the North East with a wide variety of stakeholders to develop an innovative product or service around the health and ageing agenda. This year the theme is 'Bringing Care Home'.
VOICE members are invited to attend the event as collaborators. Unlike previous years (for those who have attended before), this year we are asking VOICE members to work with the students in their teams as team members. We are anticipating that this will enable co-design and co-creation opportunities, allowing students to learn from and with the VOICE members and other external stakeholders. Other stakeholders include NHS practitioners, academic staff members, local organisations, charities and start ups.
Anyone is welcome to take part.
The event is a full day and structured to take the participants (students and stakeholders) through a process of idea generation to pitching a developed solution within a competition. As part of a team you will explore what we understand by 'Bringing Care Home' and participate in a World Cafe where you get chance to move between groups discussing themes and questions to explore the problems found beneath each theme.
Teams will then be tasked with developing an innovative product or service to solve the problems explored. They will be guided through a process of divergent and convergent thinking and the students will put together a pitch to demonstrate their idea to a panel of judges.
The event is on day hosted on Friday 8th November from 10am-8pm (approximately). The venue and exact times are to be finalised but it will be hosted in a central Newcastle location.
You do not need to attend all day, but it would be best if you are able to commit to a full morning and/or full afternoon. You are welcome to attend the whole day too.
Refreshments will be provided and travel expenses will be reimbursed. You can also receive a certificate of participation.
