With the use of technology in health now more important than ever, CONNECT University organised this year from 21 September until 2 October a special fifth anniversary edition that aimed to share knowledge and information about the latest innovations in the area of digital health. High-level experts together with internal speakers presented cutting-edge innovations 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 highlighted how the digital solutions within the health sector could bring tremendous benefits to both citizens and businesses. This ‘back-to-school’ edition targeted 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 were live-streamed and the recordings of the events are available on the CONNECT University video space.
CONNECT University is delighted to announce that in order to recognise the investment made by participants in attending the events, diplomas were given if more than 7 sessions were followed.
