SAPHIRe workshop: Health data for innovation

24 November 2020 – Through its partnership and bottom-up approach, the smart specialisation agenda brings together local authorities, academia, business spheres and the civil society, working for the implementation of long-term growth strategies supported by EU funds. All across Europe companies arise that produce or use health data.

Health data for innovation – Opportunities and societal challenges, smart specialisation agenda

Think about wearables collecting lifestyle data, health related mobile apps or machine learning applications to increase your healthy lifestyle. What are the opportunities for European regions to accelerate this emerging market? What challenges remain? How can we make sure the data will be used to benefit European citizens, and that the technology becomes available to anyone who wants it?

To gain a better understanding on the regional perspectives on health data for innovation, SAPHIRe[1] will host an online interactive workshop on Thursday 10th December 2020, 10h30-12h30 CET. During this workshop we will discuss how the smart specialisation agenda can leverage regional healthcare innovation and how this can be used to ameliorate the healthy lifestyle of citizens in a personalised way. Different best practice examples, (start-up) companies and interregional collaborations will be showcased.

You can register here. A participation link will be sent to you one day prior to the event.

A workshop wouldn’t be complete without networking opportunities. Join our SAPHIRe Discord server, and get to know the other participants or ask questions to our speakers.
