CONNECT University Autumn School 2020 | Digital Health

CONNECT University Autumn School 2020 | Digital Health
Education

We are delighted to invite you ‘Back to CONNECT University’ from 21st September until 2nd October 2020 for a top-class learning opportunity with digital health as the overarching topic. With the use of technology in health now more important than ever, CONNECT University welcomes everyone to join its special fifth edition that aims to share knowledge and information about the latest innovations in the area of digital health. High-level experts together with internal speakers will present cutting-edge innovations and foster dynamic conversation addressing how technology is transforming healthcare, including the way digital technologies such as 5G mobile communication, artificial intelligence or supercomputing offer new opportunities that could transform the way we receive and provide health services.

The coronavirus pandemic has shown us that digital technology is a key component of our collective effort to tackle the virus. Moreover, they are crucial in improving the overall health outcomes in Europe, reshaping the way patients are diagnosed, diseases are treated and drugs are discovered. Through our programme we seek to highlight how the digital solutions within the health sector could bring tremendous benefits to both citizens and businesses. This ‘back-to-school’ edition targets not only people seeking to advance their knowledge in digital health, but also those who are not familiar with the topic and aim to broaden their horizons by learning about a completely new field of interest. All the sessions will be live-streamed and the recordings of the events will be available on the CONNECT University video space
