Morning Health Talks

The EIT Health Morning Health Talks (MHT) is a series of events launched to stimulate thought-provoking discussions on the most pressing innovative healthcare topics and create a network environment for healthcare thinkers and doers in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe.

Over the past three years, local communities from Europe’s progressive regions have been taking a closer look at some specific healthcare and innovation issues that were crucial for their regional ecosystems while convening regional leaders to help map best practices and common challenges of digital health solutions. All regions face increasing demands to provide health services to patients, and many digital technologies help meet those needs. The local Morning Health Talks bring an outlook on the development of digital health ecosystems in regions considered moderate and modest innovators in Europe, covered by the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme.

Explore topics

In over 11 regions, key opinion leaders, policymakers, public institutions, innovators, start-up leaders and founders, investors and healthcare professionals discuss some of the most urgent healthcare challenges faced in European systems, such as:

  • Healthcare system transformation,
  • AI in healthcare,
  • Value-Based Healthcare,
  • Data donation,
  • Cybersecurity,
  • and hospital engagement.
