The third Immersion community event in HealthPros took place November 2019, connected to the Hamburg training week, organised at the premises of Optimedis.

Representatives were invited from key stakeholder organizations to engage with the fellows about future employment opportunities. The immersion community (IC) was organized as such that the IC representative will give a 15-minute pitch about their organization, followed by 30 minutes open Q&Ss in plenary. In case fellows wanted individual appointments they could approach the IC representative after the session. The idea was that the fellows discussed and identified potential projects to link to, find out what competencies leading organizations are interested to recruit and build their network for the time after HealthPros.
