The purpose of this program is to give an up-to-date general perspective of the life cycle of a medical device: from the initial concept until it reaches the European market.

Attendees will partake in a 3-day immersive experience in a hospital or living lab within a team of 5 to 7 participants where 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. 

Afterwards, all the teams will meet up at the main site of the Summer School, located in the mountains near 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, PhD or a proposal to a project call (national or european).

Students enrolled in a Master or Doctorate program (in medicine, pharmacy, computer science and engineering, business, health sciences, technology, usability, ergonomy, etc.) as well as current engineers and executives of medical device companies.
