The Danish Diabetes Academy secretariat was present at the PhD Day for the Faculty of Health at Aarhus University on 27 January 2017. We had a small booth where we handed out fliers and where people came to chat about our upcoming courses and activities.
One of the keynote lectures of the PhD Day was held by Martin Vesterby from INNO-X Healthcare. He talked about interdisciplinary need driven innovation and research in order to create value and solutions in the healthcare sector.
Martin Vesterby is also one of the lecturers at the Danish Diabetes Academy’s new innovation course “Put your discoveries to use in society”, the main objective of which is to teach researchers how to be better at identifying and validating the potential impact of their research by using lateral professional networks, need analyses and value proposition targets and thereby increasing the chance for project funding and impact to society.
