Health technology and life science R&D

Individual course

After completing the course, the student:

  • has basic understanding of the Health Tech and Life Science R&D process
  • has gained knowledge on how the e.g. customer needs, value proposition, product market fit, regulatory issues, IPR as well as project and process management are related to biomedical R&D
  • has gained solid basis for R&D expertise in their later career either as entrepreneurs, in industry or in academia

During the course, the students will apply the theories into practice by doing course work. In the course work, they will participate in actual innovation projects in SPARK Finland and make surveys such as IP, regulator, competitor and market analysis for the projects. Students present the group work as written document and as an oral presentation in a seminar. Student also assess the work of other groups and receive feedback.
