This activity aims to initiate entrepreneurial and innovative skills among students. Divided into 4 groups, students worked in teams over 1 year (March 2018 – March 2019) to propose a new intervention that could transform the way research is planned, conducted or reported.
They had several opportunities to receive feedback from the consortium via video-conferences or face-to-face meetings (e.g. in Split on October 2018).
Each team presented their ideas to the consortium and to a group of 4 external experts invited to a dedicated session on the challenge, taking place during the project network meeting on March 26, 2019 in Barcelona. Experts had the opportunity to ask questions after each presentation and all the proposed projects received very good feedback from the jury who congratulated everybody for the quality of their work.
In the end, the group composed of Alice Biggane (ESR2), Lorenzo Bertizzolo (ESR7) and Ketevan Glonti (ESR13) won the challenge with a project focusing on “Enhancing patient participation in Core Outcome Set development- An alternative method of outcome generation”.
