Innovation for innovation sake will no longer have a place in an ever changing and demanding healthcare landscape. Needs-based health innovation is fundamental to generate true transformation in the lives of patients and citizens. How do we create innovation that meets both the societal needs of today, and yet is future proofed for tomorrow? A solution that does not meet a clear unmet need, or addresses a gap in the market, has little chance of navigating the complex path to market. The shift towards supporting health innovations that meet truly meet healthcare’s biggest challenges must be reinforced – this is reflected not only within EIT Health, but is also recognised in the new framework programme of Horizon Europe which is specifically focused with its missions approach.
Where collective ideas
transform the future
We will explore unmet needs by sharing innovative solutions, opportunities and mechanisms focusing on what matters in the evolving healthcare landscape and the impact of ever changing technologies to help turn possibilities to realities.
Experts from all stages of the innovation pathway will offer valuable insight into how to build a clear societal needs and value proposition from the earliest timepoint, from idea to market entry and adoption and to increase understanding of the myriad factors to consider – from defining real value and impact for patients and citizens, understanding changing evidential needs and defining what really matters.
More than 900 multi-disciplinary stakeholders, representing the entire healthcare innovation landscape, are expected to come together for two days, to hear from and interact with experts and opinion leaders, decision makers and cutting-edge innovators on the topics most relevant in healthcare today

We have brought together specialists representing all stages of the innovation pathway, to offer valuable insight into how to build a clear societal needs-based and value-based proposition from the earliest time point in the process of taking an idea to market entry and adoption. We will also work to increase understanding of the myriad factors to consider on the innovation pathway – from defining real value and impact for patients and citizens to understanding changing evidential needs and defining what really matters.
