ECHAlliance moderated and presented at the ‘International Ecosystem Network’ in the session on “European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing”.   The OuluHealth Ecosystem provided an impressive overview of the many exciting initiatives ongoing across Oulu, Finland.

The hosts said, “Without the inspiration and support from the events strategic partners, AER, CORAL, EHTEL, COCIR, ECHAlliance, OuluHealth and ParkinsonNet ALEC would have been a far less successful event, our most sincere thanks to all of you for making ALEC possible. We would also like to thank all the innovative companies who showed us the future of digital health in the innovation lab.”
