EIT Health will hold an online session on 28 September at 11 am as part of the 27 September-1 October 2021 European Health Forum Gastein. This year’s session by EIT Health is entitled “The heartbeat of health innovation: How networks & collective action can help us cope with crises and lead the way to a more resilient future”. The session will focus on how networks like EIT Health can play a vital role for Europe’s recovery and response to future crises while also dealing with the everyday realities of growing demand around healthcare due to challenges such as non-communicable diseases. We will discuss how EIT Health drives quick action by connecting minds and organisations in business, research and education. This will also be an opportunity to highlight trends and innovations that have emerged from the EIT Health community during the pandemic and to explore the potential of digital health solutions beyond the pandemic.
