The Source Challenge
This collaborative event for the public is organized by H4, the Vaud hub that supports innovative entrepreneurial projects in healthcare, and the Source Innovation Lab (SILAB), the academic innovation laboratory of La Source Institute and Haute École de la Santé. The aim of the 2023 edition, which ran from May 1 to June 9, 2023, was to enable the development of innovative ideas in the field of care and healthcare. The 12 teams selected mobilized a wide range of profiles, from specialists to students, users or family caregivers. They were able to learn about innovation processes, then design new solutions or approaches that respond to current and future socio-health issues. It’s an unrivalled human and professional experience. From digital applications to high-tech inventions, the projects presented this year were very divers, with a strong focus on people and society. A 3rd edition will be organised in 2025.
