On Tuesday, 5 December 2017 in Brussels, Belgium, IEEE and its European Public Policy Initiative is hosting a major European Summit on Technology for Health: Transforming Healthcare and Wellbeing. The Summit will bring together policymakers, leaders in the healthcare, medical technology and electronics industries as well as expert patients in order to facilitate a dialogue on healthcare enabled by connected technologies, including smart wearables, bio-sensors and implantable technologies.
The program focuses on the issue of innovation in healthcare, focusing on innovative wearable, bio-sensing and implantable technologies and their impact in terms of societal transformation. The Summit will also address the resulting ethical concerns and behavioural challenges linked to these transformative technologies, and reflect on the key roles of R&D, standardization, as well as policy and regulatory actions, in creating the right conditions for bringing cutting-edge technology innovations to market for societal benefit.
