We are happy to announce that registration has opened for the EIT Health Summit 2022, which will take place from 24th – 25th May 2022 at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.
More than ever, the COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the need for innovative thinking and new ways of working in light of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the future sustainability and resilience of healthcare services.
With this in mind, this year’s flagship event will explore how healthcare systems can incorporate and reform new care delivery and financial approaches, to learn from the impact of COVID and ensure that healthcare systems are sustainable, resilient and prepared for future health threats.
We have created an exciting programme for this year’s Summit which incorporates opinions and views of healthcare thought leaders from around 30 different countries. Ensuring that the content presents the most cutting-edge themes and thinking is the Advisory Group, which includes experts from the European Commission, Karolinska Institutet, European Patients’ Forum, OECD, BioMed Alliance and many more.
The two-day event will explore how we can build a framework for transformation with world-class speakers taking to the stage to share their expertise, inspiring talks, interactive Q&As, and workshops.
First confirmed speakers include Torie Robinson, International Speaker at Epilepsy, Mental Health, Diversity & Inclusion, Audrey Tang, Digital Minister of Taiwan and Lucien Engelen, CEO of Transform.Health and Strategist in Healthcare Innovation for Deloitte.
The live sessions will cover some the most topical and meaningful issues on the healthcare innovation agenda today, as follows:
- Opening Keynote
- Next Generation Healthcare and Human-Centred Innovation
- Rethinking Health Governance and Policy
- Life Sciences in Transition
- EIT Health Catapult Final & Award Ceremony
- The Disrupters

The EIT Health Summit 2022 will be available to attend either in person in Stockholm, or online with selected sessions and networking available via an events platform which will allow attendees to tune in virtually.
