EIT Health Summit London 2017

During the event held on the 4th and 5th of December 2017, the participants discussed ways in which EIT Health can increase the impact of its work to encourage healthcare innovation and learn about the impressive effort that the network is already undertaking in this area.

The opening plenary session, held before an audience of several hundred people, included greetings and a panel discussion of the top European experts weighing in on healthcare needs from the local level to the global level. The programme focused around several plenary sessions and parallel sessions that covered the latest issues in healthcare innovation, such as digital health, patient involvement and co-creation, data privacy, and medical technologies.

The Summit also hosted the finals of the European Health Catapult contest, in which healthcare start-ups submitted their concepts to win prizes and attract investments.
