Smart Data driving Healthy Cities

Location: Aalst, Belgium
16 - 17 September 2020

Data-driven initiatives to promote health city-wide

Imagine a tomorrow where communities of citizens, industries, health & social care actors, research, cities and public services are joining forces to create a catalysing health-supportive environment. A data-driven environment where all dimensions of health and well-being are being tackled through collaboration, participation and empowerment. Where responsibly shared health Data Saves Lives. Where illness is intercepted early and managed as close to home as possible. Where digital innovation enables citizens to monitor their health through smart medical devices, to self-manage their illness, to gain awareness through gamification.

The objectives of this event are to

  • Connect health and care professionals, research organisations, pharma, scientific organisations, (health) ICT and start-ups, civic and national authorities, patient organisations, healthdata brokers
  • Scale up health care and research through the reuse of health data
  • Promote innovation & entrepreneurship in e-health
  • Anticipate the new roles of civic authorities & healthcare providers
