Attendees will partake in a 3-day immersive experience in a hospital or living lab within a team of 4 to 7 participants. During this immersive experience, they will interact with healthcare professionals, patients and senior citizens to understand unmet needs in a specific field that requires technological innovation and could lead to the creation of a new product.
After this immersive stage, all the teams will meet up at the main site of the Summer School, in the mountains above Grenoble, to further develop their projects through lectures and coaching from professionals in academic and industrial sectors.
These projects should continue after the summer school with either a master training, a PhD or a proposal to a project call (national or european).
ClinMed2019 summer school is seeking to enroll the following audience:
*Students enrolled in a Masters or Doctorate program (in medicine, pharmacy, computer science and engineering, business, health sciences, technology, usability, ergonomy...)
*Current engineers and executives of medical device companies
*New entrepreneurs interested in medical technologies
Maximum of 35-40 participants
OBJECTIVES OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL
The ClinMed summer school aims to provide the knowledge and multiple skills necessary to develop a new medical device and release it to the market. Participants will learn by taking part to workshops and lectures, divided into thematic sessions (regulation of CE marking, essential legal requirements, risk analysis, pre-clinical testing, clinical investigation, suitability for use, post-market monitoring) but also by presenting the "market" approach, thanks to experts in innovation management (business plans, protection and property management, etc...).
Participants will be able to exchange ideas and discuss various issues with clinicians, as well as work on their own projects using all the knowledge they will have acquired during the Summer School. The most promising projects will be awarded opportunities of furthering their project, such as EIT Accelerator or the INSERM structures that supervise this school.
REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL May 31st
