Discover the intersection between digital technologies and healthcare, see first-hand people-oriented innovation with purpose, rebuilding the health care sector to address the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and crisis ensuring a more equitable and resilient health future!
Recent global developments have brutally shown the need for strong, yet flexible health systems. The COVID-19 pandemic much like the war in Ukraine has been an eye-opener and a sad reminder of the urgency to be better prepared for a wide range of challenges that may beset healthcare systems. They are also a testimony to Europe’s and Europeans’ extraordinary capacity to be resilient.
INNOVEIT Paris will put forward the unprecedented wave of coordinated initiatives adopted following the pandemic that demonstrate new ambition and stamina, testifying to the elevation of health as an EU priority in its own right:
- How to secure the EU’s strategic autonomy: recovery through innovation & lessons from Europe's response to the pandemic
- How to address the scale-up financing gap: leveraging public and private co-investment capabilities to support promising EU-based start-ups/SMEs
- How to tackle the talent gap in the health sector: the role of entrepreneurship and digital skills in boosting innovation in Europe
- How to empower digital ecosystems: developing the Digital Health Single Market towards a European Health Data Space
The event will take place at Station F in Paris, France on the 21st of September with the theme of creating resilient innovation ecosystems in health. Participants will have the possibility to meet with ecosystem partners and EIT Health supported start-ups.
The conference is co-organised by EIT Health and EIT Manufacturing with contributions from EIT InnoEnergy, EIT Food, EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Digital and EIT RawMaterials.
