The international event, MedXperience, organised by EIT Health Partners Sanofi and Medicen and the Paris Region, and managed by EIT Health for its “European Hub and Talent Hub” components, will gather major actors in healthcare in Paris's Palais Brongniart on 15-16 March 2018.
More than 1 500 attendees are expected from all over the world (Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, China or Israel).
These two days provide an opportunity to gain insights into the four main topics that will be discussed through debates, speeches, plenary conferences or workshops and booths. Thus, you will find Hubs covering the following segments: Diagnosis, Advanced therapies, Imaging and eHealth.
Two other Hubs will be there for participants to discover: The Talent Hub, organised by Medicen with the support of EIT Health France, and a Europe Hub led by EIT Health and its partners. Representatives from other European instruments supporting innovation, research and to entrepreneurship in healthcare and ageing will also be present together with EIT Health.
The “Europe Hub”, a space of more than 150 square metres, will be organised to highlight our network of partners and the major European stakeholders in health
Through plenary conferences, pitches at the agora, workshops, or again on the EIT Health Hub and its satellite booths, our partners can present their competencies and know-how. This major event in healthcare is also an opportunity to meet the EIT Health ecosystem and the participants, and to discuss around the following main topics:
