BioHC schools give highly motivated graduates and early-career professionals the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of translational research and innovation approaches in human and environmental health.
Organised by ESI in collaboration with leading European universities, research laboratories and innovation-driven companies, current BioHC specialist schools include:
SaferNanoDesign - Safer Ecodesign for Nanomaterials;
IBD4Health - Innovation on Big Data for Healthy Living ;
CompMed - Computer-based simulation for Optimised Healthcare.
Intensive, innovative and international
All BioHC schools bring together young scientists from a range of cultural and scientific backgrounds. A typical school will have between twenty and thirty participants from over ten nationalities, with backgrounds in biology and biotechnology, physics and engineering, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, pharmacy …). Faculty members include leading specialists from partner universities and research laboratories as well as invited speakers from academia and industry.
BioHC schools are designed around the case study of a particular pathology or device, which serves as a focus for lectures, practical sessions and interdisciplinary group work based on the collaborative resolution of complex problems.
Innovation & entrepreneurship
Students are likewise encouraged to develop their entrepreneurial awareness and business skills through interdisciplinary group work on an innovation project. The last day of the school involves students pitching their projects to a panel of experts.
