Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) is seeking either undergraduate or postgraduate students to enter an exciting EIT Digital Health Challenge. The challenge offers the opportunity to win prizes including representing DkIT at the European Final in Paris.

Innovation Days, also known as i-Days, promote health innovation among university students through a selection of one and two-day programmes held in academic institutions around Europe. Students who participate will receive an introduction to practical health innovation tools and compete in teams to tackle real-life health challenges posed by EIT Health, local organisations, private corporations, or start-ups. The winning team of each i-Day will have the potential to attend the Winners’ Event, a final competition that unites students from around Europe.

The next i-Day takes place on 25th October at DkIT and will include students from across all disciplines.

i-Days focus on innovation and entrepreneurship in healthcare. The goal is to equip all participating students with practical tools, skills training and confidence in innovation, design and pitch participation.

Competing in i-Days will give you the opportunity to become a health innovator as you will receive an introduction and the opportunity to practice with essential innovation tools like empathy, ideation, prototyping and business experimentation. This will help nurture your creative confidence and fuel your future desire to develop new products, services and healthcare processes that make the world a better place for patients and healthcare professionals.

Competing will also give you an amazing chance to nurture supportive networks and  you will have the opportunity to meet new friends from across your peer group and deepen your relationship with people you already know. Innovation is a great way to engage and exchange ideas on real-world issues in a fun, highly collaborative way.

“i-Days gives an opportunity to people coming from different backgrounds to get together. Multidisciplinarity makes a complete difference, we we’re used to working with people from the same backgrounds. Meeting different people allows you to solve challenges in a different approach” – Kevin Leandro, University of Coimbra PhD student, Gene Therapies for Neurodegenerative Diseases, 2021 i-Days Winner.
