#EUnite Week, 29 June–1 July 2021, 9:00-10:00 CEST
Event Date: 29 June 2021
As we exit the COVID-19 crisis, we must focus on potential while building recovery plans. This includes shifting our perception of health spending from a cost to investment for societies and economies.
Health and wealth are intrinsically linked, one is unable to thrive without the other. For this reason, we need to focus on a mindset shift that encourages us to foster these values in our strategies for the future.
Hosted by EFPIA, EuropaBio, WifOR, Centre for Innovative Medicine, ScanBalt, European Cancer Organisation, European Cancer Patient Coalition, The Corporate Accelerator Forum, JA Europe, Sandoz and Novartis, this roundtable series will bring together stakeholders to discuss how to build a healthcare ecosystem together!
An interactive webinar series will take place over three consecutive days and is open to all healthcare ecosystem stakeholders and members of the public.
- Session 1| Sustainable Visions for Health and Wealth (Tuesday, 28 June 2021, 9.00 to 10.00 CET)
- Session 2| Harnessing the power of AI and big data for the future (Wednesday, 30 June 2021, 9.00 to 10.00 CET)
- Session 3| Innovating for a healthcare ecosystem (Thursday, 1 July 2021 9.00 to 10.00 CET)
#EUnite is a movement towards boosting innovation, sustainability, and efficiency in healthcare systems across Europe. Built on values of collaboration and sustainability, our vision is to see the healthcare sector undergo a transformation into an innovative ecosystem that harnesses the power of data and digital to produce needed solutions. We believe there are three keys to unlocking this resilient and thriving future: sustainability, digital solutions, and innovation.
Session 1 will consider the healthcare ecosystem’s role in driving the future of Europe, diving into the potential of sustainable health investments as a driver of growth, innovation, wealth and employment, while outlining how we can balance competitiveness and enterprise needs with access, availability, and affordability of health technologies and services.
Session 2 will discuss how we can facilitate the digital transformation of healthcare and will look at the transformation to a sustainable healthcare ecosystem. Digital transformation is based on human-centred design, cutting-edge technology and internal and external strategies for change. To bring these three elements together, the multidisciplinary collaboration will be required to help facilitate and accelerate the digital transformation.
Session 3, the final #EUnite Week session, will look at innovation enablers and the potential of a clusters approach to supporting Europe’s healthcare ecosystem emerge more resilient and thriving than ever following the pandemic. A thriving ecosystem provides a healthy environment in which different entities and stakeholders can find each other and the resources needed to explore and engage in transformative innovation. This is particularly true for the healthcare and life sciences industries, which are already harnessing innovation ecosystems across the care continuum.
