EIT Health Germany Annual Symposium 2018 – “Supporting Care in an Interconnected World” – Under the topic of “Supporting Care in an Interconnected World”, EIT Health Germany invites all EIT Health partners, health-related stakeholders, and participants of the eco-system to join its Annual Symposium this year.
For two days we will focus on discussing, exchanging and most importantly drafting concrete project ideas in two of the EIT Health Focus Areas “Bringing Care Home” and “Real World Data.”
This event will be a great opportunity to bring novel ideas, knowledge, and technologies to the table aiming to support care in an interconnected world, as well as to share results of already ongoing projects on which new EIT Health activities could be developed.

EIT Health Germany is responsible for 28 partners from various sectors in Germany and Switzerland and supports them in developing innovative healthcare solutions for current and future challenges. Within a relatively small team, we combine the knowledge and expertise to support our partners in their day-to-day management and help them in terms of project ideation, matchmaking, relationship building, proposal writing, pitch training, other advisory services, and event management. By organizing and participating in a variety of strategic events throughout the year, EIT Health Germany can raise awareness about EIT Health opportunities, but also enhance the EIT Health brand at the national and local level and initiate new project collaboration.
