Smart Health Forum in Brussels 15 October 2019

Breakfast Discussion: How to make Europe the global leader in Smart Health?

Europe has real potential to be a global leader in research and development in the health sector. By fully embracing Smart Health, we can create growth and improved healthcare that directly benefits millions of Europeans.

However, what is needed is regulation that enables and supports innovative solutions. The European Commission has identified Smart Health as one of the six areas of European strategic interest that can in the future lead to Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI), which highlights the raising awareness of the importance of the sector for Europe.

You are most cordially invited to a breakfast discussion on how to make Europe the global leader in Smart Health on Tuesday 15 October at 8:00 – 10:00 at the Member's Salon, European Parliament, Brussels.
