Date: 24 October
Venue: Delta building (Narva maantee 18, Tartu)
On 24 October 2020 the Tartu Bioinnovation Day will take place for the third time! So far already 150+ students and alumni have enjoyed the possibility to attend the challenge-based hackathon where innovative solutions to health, food and biotechnology challenges are being developed and validated.
Multidisciplinary teams of 2-6 spend the day guided by facilitators and specialists. At the end of the day teams pitch their ideas and progress, and get feedback from a panel of experts.
The Innovation Days are held at 30+ locations across Europe and Tartu BioInnovation Days winners will represent Estonia at the European finals.
