The Capsules

A new training concept to deliver quality training

In 2019, WE Health has created a new concept: The Capsules.


They will help to scale the WE Health activities while reaching out to new regions thanks to the collaboration with new partners: Medical University of Lodz (Poland), University of Barcelona (Spain), Grenoble Ecole de Management (France), La Caixa Foundation (Spain) and Glintt company (Portugal).

A WE Health Capsule is a one-day workshop on a particular topic, providing women the opportunity to be involved in a day full of inspirational talks, case discussions, idea generation and exchange of experience in health innovation focusing on the role women are playing and how their value creation can be enhanced.

8 th May - Women Empowerment Day

On May 8th, the Medical University of Lodz hosted the first capsule of WE Health aimed at young women, students in different health professions

The Women Empowerment Day gathered a large group of enthusiastic young women, future health professionals, exposing them to new ideas and insights in terms of knowledge and skills development meeting with inspirational female speakers from different health-related fields.

At the onset, Lucyna Woźniak MUL’s Vice-Rector for Research and International Relations shared her personal experience in becoming a leader in research and education, followed by Dorota Kilanska inspiring all the participants by relating her success story of implementing the international regulation for nursing in Poland. Magda Rosenmöller from IESE took them on a journey into the world of dancing, for lessons on co-creative leadership. Finally, participants learned to about Design Thinking Methodology in a workshop led by Magdalena Wrzesińska from MUL.


19th June- WeNURSE: Unconventional Entrepreneurs in Health

In this one-day workshop undergraduate, postgraduate, master and doctoral women students in nursing were invited to create innovative solutions for challenges related to ICTUS. In a day full of inspirational talks, participants were introduced to several methodologies to co-create solutions together with citizens and different stakeholders. Two ICTUS associations (Child Hemiparesis Association and Barcelona ICTUS Foundation) interacted with participants to identify better solutions.


Why is it important to empower women to innovate in nursing?

Focusing on empowering women in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship within healthcare, nursing is a profession dominated by women. The innovative and entrepreneurial potential of nursing needs to be highlighted: nurses have broad knowledge and holistic vision of care provision while working on the frontline with patients, families, and communities. In their interdisciplinary work, they interact with all different actors. Being present in all moments of a patient's life, they are the best to identify and understand patients’ needs and look for solutions.

Workshop in Lodz
Lodz 2

Meet Séverine Le Loarne from l'École de Management de Grénoble, who tell us how WE Health Poject helps to bring knowlegde and make networking between thetop innovators women in health care. These were her statements at the last 3 days workshop, "WEHealth Capacity Building Program" wich took place in Barcelona.

Why do you think projects like WE Health are necessary at European level?

"Well, I think that the We Health Project is really important, because 70% of the workforce of the health sectors is composed by women, but surprisingly enough, just 8% of the top managements are women, so basically we need to promote the impact of women so they have the power to take their own decisions for the health sectors, but they also have the power to create their own venture to impact the health sectors and the global economy.


- Can you tell us what motivated you to participate at the third module: "WEHealth Capacity Building Program"?

I'm head of the research Chair Women on Economical Renewal at Grenoble Ecole de Management, so my school is completely devoted to implement things to promote the health sectors, and as head of chair, my job is also to promote women entrepreneurship among these health sectors. So on the practical level, what we are doing for the We Health Project, we've been collaborating for two years, and we are organising one specific event to up women to develop their own network, but also to think the rules of their companies. That's the first keystone, the second keystone is composed of doing research so, for the time being, we are developing and implementing an observatory of work models for these women. When we have policies that claim that we should bring more models to up these women, we still don't know about this, so we ask women what are their work models, who inspired them, and therefore we will be capable of implementing real and interesting and useful and impact full solutions for them."
