Third edition of CRISH, the course to co-create innovative health solutions

Last Wednesday, the third CRISH edition came to its conclusion. This EIT-Health financed program was led by Hospital Clínic (Joan Escarrabill, MD), ISGlobal (Ms. Anne-Sophie Gresle and Joan Fernando, PhD), and University of Barcelona (Sergio Villanueva, PhD), and counted with the participation of Imperial College (London), University of Grenoble, IRSICaixa, IESE and AQuAS.

CRISH is a training activity aimed at patients, healthcare professionals, researchers and members of academia, based on the idea that, although participants can have different perspectives they can benefit from common methodologies to identify unmet needs and designing solutions for them. These methodologies facilitate joint participation in Research projects (research and participatory action), and design of Innovation projects (Design Thinking) and their implementation.

In this third edition, University of Coimbra (Portugal), University of Heidelberg (Germany), University of Uppsala (Sweden) and University of Lodz (Poland) have joint the consortium with the aim of instructing trainers to disseminate the course.
