Stimulating regional personalised health industry: ecosystems and EU initiatives

The uptake of personalised medicine into regional healthcare systems requires cooperation between government and industry. Regional governments can help stimulate industry by lowering the barriers and needs for entry by building strong ecosystems. This means providing digitalisation and tech transfer services, good infrastructure, and a well-educated workforce—all key parts of a vital ecosystem. Such an initial investment will further attract private sector actors with the necessary expertise in data analytics, life science, and health. Regions can receive help in setting up ecosystems from EU networks and funding, such as the Smart Specialisation Strategy, the Vanguard Initiative, Digital Innovation Hubs, and more. If we want personalised healthcare to be an innovation that benefits all European citizens, regions must take a leading role in its' implementation. 

 

In spring 2021, the SAPHIRe consortium will organise a series of online interactive workshops on the specific needs in different regions concerning personalised health innovation. The topic of the first webinar will be ‘Stimulating regional personalised health industry: ecosystems and EU initiatives’, on Tuesday 11 May 2021, 10h00-12h30 CET

 

The topics to be discussed will include: 

  • Establishing efficient health ecosystems  

  • The European Smart Specialisation Strategy and Digital Innovation Hubs 

  • EIT Health and the role of AI in healthcare
