Digital Health: Personalised Prevention – from Data and Genes to Health and Wellbeing
Summer school program is for EIT Digital master students and external participants.
Aim of the programme
Aim of program is to develop the future products of healthcare in personalised prevention.
The summer school is a focus point of interaction between education, research and business. In today’s healthcare, we are in a situation where we have the data to predict changes in patients’ health, but relevant institutions like insurances, medical centers, hospitals or governments don’t have integrated mechanisms to use the data.
The program focuses on data impact: using real-life use-cases, students will develop prevention-based products to improve the health system. Local hospitals, medical centers and relevant institutions (such as Estonian Health Insurance Fund, Estonian Genome Centre, National Institute for Health Development etc) will contribute business cases and data to give a starting point for the business development.
Representatives of medical centers and institutions, doctors and nurses, are invited to supervise the students’ project work and share their experiences. In addition, a coach with business background is included, to guarantee the feasibility of the projects.
Purpose of the intensive 2-week program is to give students a realistic experience of business modelling and ecosystem with experienced hands-on industry coaches. An investor panel will evaluate the students’ work and give immediate feedback. The goal is to prepare a new generation of innovation leaders in private and public sector.
The summer school is organized by Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) in coordination with the Digital Wellbeing focus area lead.
Summer School is an integral part of the EIT Digital Master School, that will benefit the program by developing students’ skills in teamwork, networking, entrepreneurial thinking and pitching their business ideas.
