SAMSONOWA & Partners organized and held an educational module for students of the EMBA program of the Graduate School of Management, St. Petersburg State University.

The program, dedicated to managing technological innovation, included lectures by experts from Germany and a visit to the Almazov Centre, where doctors and practitioners from the healthcare sector spoke to the audience.

As a result of the 4-day interaction, the students formed a holistic view of the innovation management process. 5 teams developed innovative smart hospital concepts using design thinking, technology transfer, and product management tools.

The participants presented the final products and services in the format of pitch-presentations before practitioners from the Almazov Centre and Shvabe Holding.
