Interested in Learning How Design Based-Approaches Can Help You Reach Patients Faster?

Radical innovation approaches have been slowly making their way out of the creative disciplines and into boardrooms around the world over the past decade. The approach has been slow to take, but it is becoming clearer that the same strategies used by successful startups and blue-chip companies to innovate quickly and cost-effectively can be put to use within the healthcare sector.

In the SPARK EUROPE WEBINAR "Design Thinking for Health Innovation", Jeremias Schmitt, innovation professional and Head of Transformation and Strategy at Fuenfwerken Design, will share his experience implementing innovation strategy in health contexts to create radically better solutions for patients as part of the Inventors for Health Program of the Stiftung Charité and SPARK-BIH.

After the online lecture you and your team will have gained insights in

  • building entrepreneurial capacities within your team
  • utilizing interdisciplinarity to nurture creativity
  • leading creative change in the lab, at the office, and beyond
