Innovation Day sheds light on ideas for the health industry of the future

Great discussions, new ideas and joint projects – all results of the first edition of the “Innovation Day” which took place last week in Essen. The Innovation Day was the third and last step in the “Innovation Call” competition held by the economic promotion agency metropoleruhr (wmr). In the SANAA building on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, creatives from design, architecture and software/games from all over Germany were challenged to present their ideas for the health industry of the future.

TRILUX Medical not only sponsored the event but was also present on-site with Ozgur Yurduozler, Head of Marketing and Product Management, as well as two product managers who exchanged ideas on current trends with the participants, presented innovations of their own and were also able to provide input on current trends. A round of business speed-dating offered the opportunity to meet seven innovative design and software companies and startups – contacts with whom future exchange will surely take place.

All participants were unanimous – the Innovation Day must be repeated! The industry can only profit from this meeting of health industry, creative scene, media representatives, stakeholders and interested parties from the Ruhr Metropolis.
