Europe needs a new approach to medicine fuelled by powerful technologies that will help people remain healthy throughout their lifetime. Not only do we have to change the way diseases are detected and treated, we also need to prepare for emerging health challenges. Digital and biomedical technologies have the capacity to potentiate other breakthroughs and transform medicine. Their integration promises to provide high-quality healthcare, strengthen Europe’s research and health industry, innovation capacity and global leadership. What are the steps that should be prioritised at a European level to boost this potential? Our high-level guests from politics, science, industry and the clinics will share their vision with you.
