EIT Health Summit 2018
#EITHSummit - Together for healthy lives in Europe
The EIT Health Summit is an annual opportunity for our world-leading consortium to unite for the purpose of promoting healthcare innovation. This gathering of EIT Health Partners represents a unique occasion to meet and discover the possibilities of our network.
The third edition of the annual EIT Health Summit will be organised in Łódź – a vibrant city located in the very centre of Europe.
The Summit will bring together around 700 participants from all over Europe who are representatives of EIT Health Partner Organisations. When planning this year’s edition, we based our activities on the experience gained in previous years. This year we want to focus on an interactive formula for the event, to enable participants of sessions and panels to take an active part in discussions, share their opinions and to note the key theses easily. This approach will be facilitated by a mobile application and other interactive tools created for the event guests. As in the past, co-working meetings in theme-specific groups will be an important part of the event but we will also make it possible for guests to meet “one-on-one” in dedicated spaces allowing convenient conversations.
