Innovation based
on clinical immersion

Edition 2021


Clinical immersion: a period where you will observe and interact with health care professionals and patients during everyday clinical practice. Each team is placed at a specific hospital department, where the clinical immersion takes place, and works alongside the department throughout the program to identified needs and co-create innovative solutions.


The identified needs are validated and screened with the support of clinic staff and Experts. Selected high-impact needs are developed further into business concepts.


Guided by design experts and based on the principles of user-centred design, the fellows will brainstorm a range of innovative solutions.
Considered the findings of research related to intellectual property, regulation, payment pathways, and business models that would impact the different solutions, the best concept will be selected in an objective way out of all the possible solution ideas. Ultimately, only the best solution will remain for development.
