ScanBalt Forum 2020At this year’s ScanBalt Forum, innovation clusters from across Europe are invited to share their experiences with digital solutions to overcome the COVID 19 crisis.

The COVID-19 crisis has put digitization of healthcare and cross-border cooperation high on the agenda for the future of Europe. Innovation clusters, private and public research institutions, pharmaceutical companies and start-ups work together with university hospitals and health care institutions on concepts to overcome the current crisis and to strengthen digital health care. This German EU Council Presidency has set itself the goal of using these civil society initiatives as a starting point for the creation of a Single European Health Data Space.

You are very welcome to join the ScanBalt Forum 2020 taking place online at 4th of September.
