Two-day event brings together more than 400 EIT Health Partners, start-ups and other stakeholders
The EIT Health Summit kicked off 4 December 2018 in Łódź, Poland, as more than 400 attendees gathered for the network’s key annual event, which will see two days of discussion and planning actions to drive innovation in healthcare.
Speakers will range from the Polish Minister of Health to the Deputy Director General of DG SANTE, to top executives of major pharma companies and hospitals.
Panels will cover themes like healthy cities of tomorrow, smart financing, Big Data and AI. And the EIT Health Think Tank will run a discussion about the role of Big Data in healthcare, building on the output of a year’s worth of regional Round Tables.
Concrete actions will be set in motion with the announcement of this year’s challenges for the EIT Health Wild Cards. A pre-Matchmaking session at the Summit will build on the work done during our three Ideation events to develop new and innovative proposals for the BP2020 Call.
As in past EIT Health Summits, the finals of the European Health Catapult will add some excitement as the “best of the best” start-ups in the Biotech, Medtech and Digital Health categories will pitch to see who will win top prizes.
