ICT 2018: Imagine Digital – Connect Europe
4th December 2018 - 6th December 2018
In an open and participatory event, organised by the European Commission and the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, citizens can join science community members, policymakers, and fellow ICT-enthusiasts to discuss the future in a digital Europe.
Julien Venne, Non Exective Director at ECHAlliance will speak at The Digital Health Society session on 6th December.
When: Thursday 6th December 2018, 9am-9.45am
Where: Room M1
The networking session will be the opportunity to give an update on the “Digital Health Society” (DHS) movement launched last year during the Estonian EU Presidency. This informal movement which has created a legal entity in 2018, is gathering more than 200 organisations across Europe: patients/citizens/consumers representatives, policy-makers (governments of Member states and regions, cities), healthcare providers and professionals, researchers, standard organisations, large companies and start-ups, insurers, etc.
The work around the DHS moonshot “100 million Digitally Connected Healthy EU Citizens by 2027” will also be presented, as well as the action plan of the 4 DHS Task Forces about “Interoperability and standards”, “Citizen-controlled data governance and data donation”, “Legal framework for free flow and 2ndary use of data” and “Digital transformation and change management in health and social care organisation”. This session will be the opportunity to debate around these topics, in the perspective of preparation of the next years of research and innovation for health in Europe.
