Innovation in Healthcare by Junior Achievement Cyprus

Junior Achievement Cyprus organizes for the second year the EIT Health i-Days 2023 in Nicosia, Cyprus. The i-Days promote innovation in healthcare among university students through dozens of one- and two-day programmes taking place across Europe in October and November 2023. i-Days in Cyprus focuses on the challenges faced by oncology and cancer patients, thus the challenge of the two-day event will be innovation in areas related to cancer, such as Prevention, Early Diagnosis, Treatment, Rehabilitation, Data Collection and Analysis, Psychological Support, Reintegration, Palliative Care and Research.

JA Cyprus invites students to participate in an intensive two-day event on 21-22 October 2023 at Cleopatra Hotel in Nicosia (With free accommodation).

During this intensive two-day event, students of all levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD) are guided through the programme to develop their own business ideas in the healthcare sector, reaching up to the creation of a product in the simplest commercial form (Minimum Viable Product).  Guided by experts, facilitators and coaches, participants refine their ideas and propose their solutions to a distinguished panel of judges.

The knowledge, experiences and skills they will acquire through i-days are countless, since by the end of this program students

  • will acquire entrepreneurial skills by working in a team and develop a sustainable solution, which they will present on stage
  • will gain the necessary tools to innovate with the help of experts coming from the Business, Health and IT industries
  • will transform the healthcare industry by bringing solutions to today’s challenges
  • will share the experience with participants from different disciplines and backgrounds
  • They will join the JA and EIT alumni networks, and gain access to exclusive opportunities

The winning team of i-Days 2023 will travel to Barcelona, Spain to compete with all national winners across the continent and represent Cyprus in a high-level European competition!

Register HERE until October 8, 2023.

Registrations will be per person and the teams will be created on the 1st day of the bootcamp.
