School of health innovation for professors

How can you increase innovation in your lab? How can you combine being a scientist and a health innovator? These are some of the topics that will be discussed at the innovation course for professors.

School of Health Innovation is a collaborate initiative between UIO, NTNU, KI and KU.

We aim to provide life science researchers and clinicians with tools and insight into how innovation can be put to work for the benefit of patients, the healthcare system and our society.

We have since 2017 delivered courses to life science phds, post-docs and clinicians from our Nordic universities.

The course will be held in two different modules: 

1) 22nd November, online. This module is optional and you can decide if you would like to participate.

2) 29th and 30th November, in person in Copenhagen.
