With a bigger venue and more options, this year all students will have the chance to book tickets and attend the awards, with a choice of drinks reception or a three course meal with wine. Tickets go on general sale from 14 April.
King’s College London Innovation Forum, King’s College London Health and Life Science Enterprise Committee and Entrepreneurship have put together a unique opportunity for you to use your problem-solving skills to come up with solutions to tackle global health challenges we face today. The event is free and open to all at KCL. This special event offers you the opportunity to:
Develop ideas in teams to tackle health challenges including (but not limited to) obesity, antimicrobial drug resistance, diabetes and cancer.
Receive feedback on the idea from a panel of experts from PwC, QuintilesIMS etc.
Present your idea to a panel of judges with expertise in global health from leading organisations including GSK.
Each participant will receive a certificate and have chance to win a prize!
If you don’t have an idea or a team, don’t worry just come along and the organisers will assist you in finding a team. If you cannot participate in the workshop, you can still attend the final team presentation. There will be a reception with free food and drinks, plus the opportunity to build your professional networks and develop contacts that may be beneficial for the next step in your career.
This scheme will run as a pilot during the year 2017 and is subject to review over the summer. If successful, there may be an opportunity to roll this out wider across the campuses. Space is limited and allocation will be offered on a needs basis.
