On 1st December the EIT Health Innovation Days Winners' Event 2019 took place in Paris. In workshops, the 33 EIT Health i-Day winner teams further developed their ideas with the support of mentors and coaches.
At the end of the event, the i-Day teams had the opportunity to present their work in a pitch. The three best teams were presented at the award ceremony and rewarded with impressive prize packages and with the opportunity to present their ideas at the next day's EIT Health Summit.
