The SMART HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES in medical diagnostic and treatment FORUM is the European event that will bring together various gamechangers determined to make systemic improvements in healthcare.
Between 7 and 9 of February 2023, in Iasi, Romania there will be 3 full days of activities such as panel sessions, debates, project generation roundtable, site visits and an European Smart Health pitching competition in order to enhance collaboration, exchange know-how and facilitate the internationalization of medical business. The variety of proposed sessions will embark the participants on a journey in the world of smart health technologies and will address, at the same time, the challenges imposed by the digital transition in health.
Starting from the panel sessions where clusters managers will present best practices in Smart Health ecosystem transformation, European specialists will engage in presentations about Smart Health and AI Technologies in Medical Diagnostics and Treatment, hospital managers will debate the challenges in implementing smart hospital concepts and representatives of patient associations will present how can be incorporated the patients’ needs in personalized healthcare, a project generation roundtable focusing on new ideas needed to implement the smart healthcare across Europe is envisaged. The goal is to facilitate consortia development dedicated to smart health technologies in medical diagnostic & treatment and to apply for EU funding programs such as Horizon Europe, EU4Health, Digital Europe or Interregional Innovation Instrument (I3).
The European pitching competition of the HealthTech and MedTech startups & companies could be the most attractive part of the program, the audience being made up of clusters and hospital managers, medical specialists, testing clients and potential investors. The pitching session will be complemented by speed networking, mentoring sessions for the startups and C2C, B2B, R2B, B2C meetings, in order to create a proper context for future collaboration between the participants.
We have also envisaged site visits to the medical infrastructures of the University and Pharmacy Gr. T. Popa Iasi (Advanced Centre for of Research & Development in Experimental Medicine – CEMEX, Medical Simulation Centre) and Petru Poni Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry in order to get acquainted to the resources, advancements and projects of the North East Region in this domain.
The Smart Health Technologies Forum represents an opportunity to implement the ClusterXchange scheme and to enhance collaboration between European clusters and their members in the field of precision medicine, as it will be organized under the framework of MEDIC-NEST project, an COSME funded project that brings together four clusters from across Europe: IMAGO-MOL from Romania, MEDVIA from Belgium, HBIO from Greece and BIOTECYL from Spain. MEDIC-NEST will facilitate the setting up of a Meta Cluster on Precision Medicine, the development of the MEDIC-NEST Strategy in Precision Medicine and a pilot Joint Action Plan for Precision Cancer Medicine 2022-2027.
